When books become old or unwanted, you can transform them into a treasured keepsake. With folded book art, there is no cutting involved; the pages are merely folded into something special. Here is your opportunity to upcycle a book into a piece of art! Kristen Purdy will be at Orrville Public Library to teach us how to fold a book into a repeating heart pattern, just in time for Valentine’s Day. All supplies will be provided for this free 6 p.m. class. This program is intended for adults and registration is required, there are only a few seats left so contact the library at 330-683-1065 to register today!
