I can’t stress how important it is to us here at the library that all books find good homes. But we know not every book destined to stay in it original form. In addition to great finds, like-new titles and family favorites there are number of books waiting to be taken home and ripped apart.
Swing by the library to pick up a copy of The Repurposed Library: 33 Craft Projects That Give Old Books New Life by Lisa Occhipinti and learn how to turn your book fair finds into amazing art creations and beautiful everyday objects. Full of detailed pictures and amazing instructions you can learn to make everything from wreaths and vases to lamps and even a Kindle “keeper” (Did you hear you can now get books on your Kindle through the Ohio eBook Project!?)
Once you get your feet wet recycling and repurposing you can stop in to get these other great titles to get a jump on your holiday gift making.
