Columbia Library Hosts Build-A-Book Workshop
COLUMBIA - Kids at the Columbia Public Library put a new spin on some old books on Thursday at Build-a-Book.
The bookmakers got their hands on some scissors and glue and dressed up their books with a variety of colorful fabrics and accessories. One boy said he would use his creation to hold his drawings, while another girl wanted a place to put her photos.
The librarians explained how they dug out the old books from recycling bins before they were picked up and tossed away. They then cut out the books' pages and provided the kids with both new and recycled materials to build their own books.
Build-a-Book is one of the many programs for family and kids at the library this summer. The theme for this summer's reading program is "One World, Many Stories."
