Recycle an ex-library book into a work of art and win a prize
Library members of all ages are being encouraged by Bath & North East Somerset Council to get creative and turn old books into works of art.
If you would like to take part just visit any of Bath & North East Somerset Council’s libraries from 28 May to choose an ex-library book and pick up an entry form. You have until 31 August to remake the book into anything you like.

To take part you must be a member of a LibrariesWest library and you have to use ex-library books supplied by Bath and North East Somerset Council’s Library Service. Apart from that you are free to remake your book in any way.
