New Workshop! Create Your Own Document Box

The California Genealogical Society's Book Repair Committee stays busy making minor and major repairs to the books in our library. But occasionally a book is in such poor condition it cannot be rebound. In those cases, the committee creates a book box so the item can continue to be shelved.

Book Repair Committee chair Bill O'Neil has agreed to share this skill in a new workshop as part of our October Family History Month offerings.

Thursday, October 18, 2012
9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

California Genealogical Society Library
2201 Broadway, Suite LL2
Oakland, California 94612

Join Bill O'Neil and learn how to create your own book box or document box. Workshop participants will make a custom-sized box for a personal item or items. When registering, let us know the dimensions of your treasure: height, width and depth, so we may prepare your personal materials. Size should be no larger than 8 1/2" by 11" by 2".

• Workshop is limited to ten.
• $35 charge for materials must be pre-paid.
• Walk-ins will not be admitted.

Registration confirmations will be sent to the first ten who register and pay the materials fee. Additional names will be collected and placed on a waiting list in case of cancellations.
