Celebrate National Library Week with an Altered Book craft @ Grafton Public Library
Apr 17 @ 7:00 pm – Apr 17 @ 8:00 pm
Celebrate National Library Week with an Altered Book craft @ Grafton Public Library | Grafton | Massachusetts | United States

Celebrate National Library Week at the Grafton Public Library by experiencing the art of the Altered Book.  Teacher, Donna Rodonja will be teaching participants how repurpose a book by turning it into a birdhouse.  (Check out a sample of the project at the library).

Participants are encouraged to bring a book to work with (or one will be provided).  It should be at least 70 pages long and no more than 500 pages.  Paperbacks will of course yield a smaller finished product. Anyone who has a hot glue gun is encouraged to bring it, though that is not necessary.

Come have fun! No serious people need apply.

To sign up, stop by the library, or email graftonlibrary.ma@gmail.com or call 508-839-4649.
