On Tuesday, November 20th, the Perry Library meeting room was full of enthusiastic families dismantling books. They tore off covers and pulled out pages in a frenzy! ~ And we encouraged every minute of it!
This program was another installment in a series of craft nights inspired by The Repurposed Library: 33 Craft Projects That Give Old Books New Life by Lisa Occhipinti. Occassionally a book will become so damaged or worn that it can no longer continue circulation. The condition of these items make it so that they are not able to be donated to the Friends of the Library for sale either. These books make great materials for one of a kind crafts!
Our November program was in keeping with the holiday season. We made wreaths! Some participants chose to stick with the instructions from The Repurposed Library, others tried pinterest, and other devised their own technique! The results were not only beautiful but also a room full of laughter!
