PersonnelA family business
In the last 35 years, at least one person from HBL has been in attendance at the twice per year LBI national meeting. HBL personnel have toured over two dozen binderies, both library and edition, as well as visited paper, buckram, board, adhesive, endsheet and equipment manufacturers in the US and Canada. Once per year attendance at ALA is common, as are our over 20 per year appearances at state and special library meetings. We have also attended meetings about On-Demand Publishing, GraphExpo, Historical Preservation, Press Associations, BIA, DRUPA2000 and other related events.
