The California Genealogical Society is taking reservations for the popular Book Repair Workshop, taught by Book Repair Committee Chairman Bill O'Neil.

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.

The workshop is limited to eight participants. The fee is $25 for members and $45 for non-members. ($20 of the non-members fee may be applied towards society membership on the day of the workshop.) Fee includes all materials and supplies.

Register online.

Pre-registration is required. Registration confirmations will be sent to the first eight who register. Additional names will be collected and placed on a waiting list in case of cancellations.

  • Walk-ins will not be admitted.
  • Fee for materials must be pre-paid.
