Jackpot at the library

library books bought 062821

Eight dollars:
words, pictures.
Your castoff’s
my jackpot.

Normally I don’t take my purse in with me at the library as the bar code to check out books is on a plastic tab on my keychain. Last week I saw a sign outside saying to check out their sales area which is in a vestibule near the front door that I never use and so brought it in today. All hardbacks are $2, even the giant coffee table book of photos. As I’m working on postcards for the POPO my eyes glommed onto that one and the mosaic workshop one. I can cut images from the Eye to Eye and get ideas from the mosaic one. The one on wildflowers is for field identification. You’ll see the bonus book, Nick Hornby’s, “Juliet, Naked,” which I am very much looking forward to reading.

    What great finds! I bet the flower identification book has a bunch of pictures. I don’t think I have ever had a hardcover ID book.

    I can’t wait for my library with the basement booksale room to reopen…supposedly in July. A prime source of collage materials. Great finds! (K)

      Fantastic, July is just around the corner! This huge book with excellent photos will populate many collage works. No sense in letting it collect dust on bookshelf.

      Yes! I’ve been wanting a book on how to do mosaic for a long time, especially what surfaces to use and how to adhere to the surface.

        I’m glad you got it plus at a price you can’t beat. We go to yard sales on Saturdays and I’m always on the look out for books also.

    I love library book sales and can always find something. I’ve also gotten books to use as craft projects. 🙂

      🙂 I’ve used magazines and calendars up to now, but this one is bought with that purpose. Great resource!
