Repairing a wooden accordion door

With apologies if this has been posted already...

About 20 years ago, we installed wooden accordion doors for a closet. While the wood panels have held up nicely, the glue (or other adhering substance) has of course gotten tired and dry, so the panels are coming apart. The source where we bought the doors has long since gone out of business. Are there any recommendations regarding best sources for replacement joins, and the substance that would be used (like glue, if not such). Our collective minds at home are not recalling what type of substance to use, and we're unsure about where to get replacement parts.

By the way, we're in the DC-MD-VA area. Any advice kindly appreciated. We are otherwise (forgive the pun) flopping around for an answer.

Unless it's antique and you absolutely love the door just get a new one. Most big box stores have them. There cheap dollar wise.
