Rebinding Procedures
Rebinding Procedures

Criteria for Rebinding a Book

  • The body of the book must be clean and in good physical condition.
  • The inside margins should measure at least 5/8 inch between the center crease and the edge of the print.
  • Replacement, when possible, is a better value than rebinding.
  • Books with high content value that are no longer available and that fulfill criteria one and two should be considered.

Rebinding costs are calculated based upon the size of the book.  A service charge and fuel surcharge is added to each order.  Unless the item can not be replaced, this is not a cost-effective practice and is discouraged.

Orders for rebinding will no longer be handled by Library Services.  If  rebinding services are desired, contact Library Services and you will be provided with contact information for companies that provide those services.
