Library craft book

Book of Librarian Crafts

I’m starting a new project, with the working title of “Librarian Crafts.”

My idea is to have sections with different categories:

  • pre-school story-time crafts
  • school age crafts
  • crafts for adults using books and other library-themed items

The trick to that will be keeping it focused and not just a loose collection of unrelated things.  My instructions need to be consistent in style, illustration and tone.   I need to research a bunch of things: how to do layout, what constitutes original and not plagiarized craft ideas, how to take professional looking shots of my crafts and what comparable books look like in length.  I also need to make lists of crafts and decide what is going into the book.  Should I include (with permission) pictures of other people’s crafts?

Dear readers, I would love your input.  Tell me about what you think of the concept, what crafts you feel should be in the book, and ideas for putting the book together.

  1. The crafts should also include some simple electroncics things like lighting a lightbulb or led. wouldn’t it be cool to build a light up button to wear?
