Book Covers Upcycled Into Gift Bags

ImageYou or your volunteers / Friends group can make gift bags out of book covers, and sell them to raise funds for your library.

Alternately, you can set up a passive programming space by providing book covers and craft materials — like glue sticks, ribbon, yarn, and empty breakfast cereal boxes — and see what creative things your patrons can make with them.

Here's what Kimberly-Little Chute Public Library posted on Facebook:

We put out book covers at the Little Chute Library for patrons to take and do something creative with. Look what the talented Kathryn Murphy did with hers! What a great way to reuse, recycle, and make a unique gift.
