Today is Book Lover’s Day. What better way to celebrate than to head to your library, check out some books and read!
And did you know that books can also serve as art? Beyond the lovely covers and illustrations, older books heading for recycling can be repurposed. Yes, this librarian does practice the book arts!
We have a beautiful new book ” The Repurposed Library” by Lisa Occhipinti (call # 745.54 Occ, but currently on our new book display when it’s not checked out). The author demonstrates 33 (thirty-three) craft/art projects to give old books a new life.
Not crafty yourself? Well, check out our Beauty and the Books silent auction in March 2012. There will be at least one repurposed book available for bidding.
