Program Description

Event Details

Do you have books that you would like to see repaired, e.g., cookbooks, Bibles, heirlooms? Do you want to make a box for a precious volume, documents, or mementos, etc? If so, bring the books in need of attention and you will be shown how they can be repaired.
Trained in Paris, a bookbinder and restorer for 35 years, Paul Belard taught book restoration at CW Post Adult Education for several years. More recently - from 2015 to the arrival of COVID - he mentored at the Norwood Avenue Elementary School in Northport, where a group of young book enthusiasts had created their own club, The Book Doctors.
