Second life for old books

Usually the Yorkton library frowns on people tearing, cutting, and slicing up books. Luckily for the people who participated in the Upcycle event over the weekend, they didn’t get in trouble for chopping and changing several novels, comics, and encyclopedias.

The Yorkton Arts Council and the Yorkton library hosted the Upcycle event on Nov. 3. The event allows participants to turn old and neglected books into art pieces. It’s a chance to give forgotten novels a second life while people flex their creative muscles.

Participants made a variety of Christmas-themed creations during the three-hour event. People turned pages and covers into stars, decorated trees, and miniature villages.
