Pratt Library Altered Book Competition!

Feeling creative? Grab one of those unwanted books and turn it into a work of art. The Enoch Pratt Free Library is proud to announce its 2nd annual Altered Books Competition.

An altered book is any book that has been recycled into a work of art. They can be rebound, painted, burned, added to, drilled or otherwise adorned. As simple as adding a drawing, or as complex as creating an intricate sculpture.

All entries to the competition are due at 1pm on Saturday, November 20. There will be a teen (13-18) and an adult (18+) category. Prizes will be awarded to the top three altered books for each category. The top 20 altered books will be on display at the Central Library starting December 10th.

My librarian mother would be mortified, but at least you'll be recycling!
