WEEDED: Book Art on Display

Last year I convinced one of our art teachers to take on a sculpting project using weeded books.  We were all (library staff, administrators, art department and students) very pleased with the outcome of those weeded book art sculptures.  I didn’t even have to ask this year. The art teacher let me know right away at the beginning of the year that she wanted our discarded books that no other teachers seemed to want.

Already these weeded books are making their way back to the library as sculptures, and again we are all amazed.  These are the first three though there are more in the works coming.  These are the completed ones.  I will share when the rest find their way to the library. I’m really excited about the proposed tribute to Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.
