Making Things with Books

The Problem

We (library helpers) hope to show that books can be used to learn skills in all areas of life, such as creative arts, cooking, baking, crafts, etc. We hope to show that we can teach ourselves something that we're interested in. The money that is raised from the items we create will be donated to a snow leopard initiative, because snow leopards need protection. We learned about the distress of the snow leopards from a library magazine, so our learning and action comes full circle.

Our Plan

The library volunteers are making paper wallets and pop-up greeting cards from recycled calendars. They are also baking something from their cultures. All library volunteers will read the article about the snow leopard, so that when they are selling the crafts, they can inform the public about the plight of the snow leopard.
