Altered books reception to be held Oct. 23

October 20, 2013

It's not often that people are encouraged to draw on, paint on, or take pages out of library books.

During the month of October, community members altered outdated library books that were not in use and turned them into pieces of art. As a part of a library program, books were painted on, cut apart, collaged, folded into careful patterns, made into sculpture and even turned into functional objects like clocks or purses.

Come and see what program participants have made at a reception from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 23 in the Marshalltown Public Library meeting rooms. Get a chance to page through books, talk to the artists that made them and see the creativity of our community. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

For more information, contact Katie at the library's Information Desk at 641-754-5738 ext. 4 or at
