Book Sale and Book Crafts

The Friends Book Sale starts today (November 4th) at 4:00 with admission to anyone who is a Friends member. Memberships can be purchased at this time ($5 for a year). From 6:00 until 8:00 this evening, the sale will be open to everyone. The Book Sale will be open from 9:00-3:00 on Saturday. If you bring your own bag (or box), you'll get a free book!

Have more books than you know what to do with them? You might find inspiration in the works of Scotland's Unknown Book Sculptor, or artist Brian Dettmer. The book sculpture on the right is Mr. Dettmer's "Webster Withdrawn."

Or if you'd like to tackle a more practical craft, the internet provides dozens of ideas and projects:Please do NOT attempt any of these projects with books which you have checked out from the library, borrowed from a friend, or you might want to read again! And if you can't bear the thought of taking scissors to a book, stop by Carnegie-Stout to check out books with tips on recycling other things into objects beautiful and practical!
