Here's an idea for a teen or adult program that lets crafters create "books" to add to a shelf to serve as hidden storage. This could also be a project for your volunteers or Friends group to create and sell as a fundraiser for your library.
Jessica Nupponen shared Fredricksen Library's post on the ALA Think Tank Facebook group, then linked to the Pinterest pin that links to the illustrated step-by-step instructions at the Sewing Barefoot blog.
Here are the tools needed to make some bookish hidden storage:
- hardcover books (readily available from your library's book sale or discards)
- a small crate or box
- hot glue gun
- X-ACTO knife
