Books need mending? Visit the Book Doctor.

Books can get a lot of use, abuse and wear, but the broken spines, torn pages and loose hinges do not have to spell the end for that well-loved novel. Have your damaged books examined and diagnosed at one of our Book Doctor clinics.

Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to bring any books that need some tender loving care to the fifth annual Book Doctor Clinic. We will perform simple mending, when possible. The clinic is free, and the repair process often takes mere minutes.

While the Book Doctor can cure most tome ills, people with rare or valuable materials that have severe damage may be referred to a nearby book conservator for specialty work.

For more information, call 974-5226.

The Book Doctor is in:

11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Tuesday, November 8
