Recycle, Reuse and Repurpose: 7th Grade Students Create Artwork from Weeded Library Books

Douglas Middle School Librarian Mrs. Hubbell partnered with Douglas Middle School Art Teacher Mr. Hancock and his 7th grade art students to recycle outdated and damaged library books. The students used books to create 3-dimensional book mobiles and sculptures which are displayed in the Douglas Middle School Library. Admittedly, students were reluctant to bend, tear and rework the books but also took pride in giving the old and damaged books a new life as art pieces.
