Having withdrawn thousands of books (and yes sometimes with pain in my heart but more often with a smile) I've had lots of thoughts what to do with them. Our maintenance team and I created little tables of encyclopedias and I had ideas to use some of the books as actual book shelves but that never happened.
Here is a great idea for what to do with old books that you might not want to throw out but that is of no use to the library anymore; make a Christmas Tree out of it.
This Youtube video shows you exactly how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKvPJljPiYQ
Very simple and you can embellish the tree or transform it into an angel if you put a little Styrofoam ball on the
You could make several and hang the angels from an upturned umbrella frame, as if they're flying…..
What a great way to see something that is no longer used being transformed into something beautiful!
