Not a surprising post from a part time librarian maybe.


We help people do it all the time!

But those letters on the bottom of our New Books display?

I did that!

I bought some small book letters on my Texas trip, and with my scroll saw from Christmas, I was set to make my own.  These are full size… a little more difficult to keep straight edges, but they turned out fairly well!

For those of you now beside yourselves because I cut up a book… seriously.  They are old, not being read, and taking up space in our tiny library.  They would have ended up in the landfill.  I figure I’m doing everyone a favor!

I will make more… they’re very popular!

  1. I just knew, right away, that *you* made those neato letters! I can’t imagine a more dignified purpose for old, well-loved books.

  2. There’s a little part of me that wonders if I could cut up a book, but then again, I’ve pulled out pages to draw on, so why not? I want to do this!
