The California Genealogical Society is taking reservations for the popular Book Repair Workshop to be held on Saturday morning, October 16, 2010, from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Taught by Book Repair Committee Chairman, Bill O'Neil, the workshop is limited to ten enrollees.

Workshop participants learn book repair techniques by creating a book for themselves. Pages are provided and the pupils create the binding. The finished product will be a copy of a "how to" pamphlet written by the late Dick Thrift, founder of the CGS Book Repair Committee. Everyone goes home with a self-made instruction book and souvenir of the day.

• Workshop is limited to ten.
• $25 charge for materials must be pre-paid.
• Walk-ins will not be admitted.

Register online.

Payment instructions will be emailed with registration confirmation. A registration confirmation will be sent to the first ten who register. Additional names will be collected and placed on a waiting list in case of cancellations.

The full schedule of classes offered during October Family History Month is available for download.
