Then look no further then the Altered Book Club. Altered books have been defined as “any book, old or new that has been recycled by creative means into a work of art.” Students will bring old hardcover books from home, or one can be provided, and turn them into beautiful artwork. Each week will be a different theme to get the creative juices flowing. Signups are at the Reference Desk on the second floor.
