One of the best parts of my job is connecting readers with the stuff that they want or need. I’m excited to have an opportunity to do just that with makers and crafty types this Friday (12/5), from 3:15 to 4:15pm, when I’ll teach a free one-hour class on how library materials can inform and inspire you in your own DIY endeavors. I’ll bring along a bunch of materials from the collection to share—including the book above, as well as vintage design books and fabric and wallpaper samples that I found when working with our Design by the Book artists. The South Court classroom opens at 3:00, and class starts at 3:15. There’s no registration and the class is free; just come on in and grab a seat!
