Hello! I help preserve the paper and book items at Hill Memorial Library. I create custom housing for unusual pieces which sometimes requires invention, and I stabilize fragile materials so that they can be handled by patrons or digitized. I offer training for proper handling techniques.
I also have a background in artists' books and printmaking.
