Carry your (Library) Books in Style!
The school year is officially underway! I know I have seen my fair share of really cool backpacks coming in and out of the library. If there is one thing I love almost as much as a great book is book swag. Tote bags, bookmarks, shelf ends, you name it. I especially love when great book swag reflects great books. So that is what inspired next week’s Teen Time: Doodle your own book tote bag!
The library will be providing a nice sized blank tote bag for teens to create a one of a kind masterpiece. This DIY event was inspired by those cool “I READ BANNED BOOKS” tote bags and goes along with the spirit of banned books month, but teens should feel free to create what speaks to them. Maybe geometric prints are your thing, or a great quote from your favorite book, maybe you are feeling ambitious and want to draw out your favorite scene from a book–the sky and your imagination is the limit. Stop by the library annex from 3pm-5pm on Thursday September 14th to create with us!
