Spring Cleaning and Weeding

The first day of spring was last week, and Easter is this weekend, so if you’re in the mood for some spring cleaning, start by weeding your library! Then make some springy book decorations to celebrate!

Get a little more advanced and turn plastic eggs into 3-D book page bunnies.

If you’re looking for more crafty inspiration and programming for your library, plan to attend the upcoming Spring Workshop session “Crafts in the Library,” and check out the ODIN catalog for crafts books available at the State Library.

If you’d like to weed your collection, but don’t know where to start, check out the CREW manual or call your Field Services representative. We’ll be happy to visit and help you get started!
