Make Your Own Bookplate
Sat, Dec 2 · Main Library, Level 4
Join us for a bookplate workshop during the Friends of The City Library Holiday Used Book Sale. If you pick up a giftable book during the Sale, why not personalize it with a custom-made bookplate? We'll have materials to transform our bookplate designs into your very own set of bookplates for gifts or for your own library.
When you give a homemade gift, you are giving a part of yourself to the recipient.
It's that time of year when the weather turns frosty, friends and families gather, and Pinterest pages fill with aspirational craft projects. Make your DIY dreams a reality this holiday season while indulging in warm popcorn and a movie.
