Book Crafting for Summer

Looking for a fun project to work on over the summer?  Have a set of well-loved books that you don’t plan on keeping?  Want to hide away some personal treasures in your home or dorm?  Then try making a Multi-Book Secret Storage Compartment!

You will need:   
  •  A set of books that are not hot titles that would draw people's attention (and that you are willing to sacrifice the contents of-- it's hard, I know!)
  • A scroll saw or hand saw
  • Masking tape
  • Glue (optional)

Just follow the steps shown below:

If you don’t have books you’re willing to part with, try stopping by our Friends of the Library book sale being held on July 10th.  The sale will be located in the lower level of the Tarleton Center in Room 001.  This year they are reducing their book prices.  It's now $0.50 for a paperback and $1.00 for a hardback (half price starts at 2pm).  And for just $10, a customer can fill a Friends tote bag (level to top) with books of their choosing.  We hope to see you there!
