Sophia Bogle, owner of Red Branch Book Restoration, will offer a demonstration on repairing books, April 6, from 1 to 3 p.m., in the Large Community Meeting Room of the Medford Branch Library.

(I would take this workshop if my family had relocated to Ashland by then. I hope for repeat presentations. I greatly enjoyed the semester that I repaired books at the Sonoma State University Library and consider book repair an essential part of library collection maintenance.)

Bogle will show before-and-after photographs, bring the tools necessary for effective book repair and answer questions from the audience.

The presentation is sponsored by the Friends of the Medford Library. For more information, contact the Medford Branch Library at 541-774-8679 or visit www.jcls.org. Medford Branch Library is located at 205 S. Central Ave.
