Build a Better World with Upcycled Materials [Archive]
Spring is almost upon us. Now is a good time take stock of where we are with our programs and our programming. Maybe you are ready to spend some time straightening up your back room? From those audio visuals that need to be surplussed to the boxes and bags lying about, pay attention to what you are throwing away. Are we looking at what we have in the most creative ways? Upcycling is the process of re-purposing items into more interesting or creative uses. This webinar will explore new learning possibilities using old items we have cluttering the back room. Create interesting displays, develop programs or programming for any number of groups in your library including Makerspace activities. Turn bottle caps into stools, plastic sacks into rugs, boxes into displays and games, or those video cases or chip tins into a number of manipulatives. Fast-paced session with tutorials, working examples and a lists of resources.
