Library Program Mini Books & Albums for Teens

Crafting Librarians if you want an easy program, try mini books & albums! We did one the other night and had a good turnout, including boys, for a December program. They stayed busy for a solid hour and we had to stop them to clean up and look for their rides. I created two examples, one with photos (an album) and one without (as shown), which is a collection of Six Word Memoirs from my coworkers. I like any opportunity to get the creative juices flowing, even if for 2 minutes!

In the publicity, they were asked to bring photos to put in their books and some did while others made quote books and ode to Twilight books. Everyone had an enjoyable time, including myself and the Teen Librarian!

Supplies per participant:
4 – 3.5×5 pieces of cut cardboard (from cereal, cake mix, soda boxes)
2 – 1″ binder clips
scrapbook paper
glue stick
hole punch

See my other posts, mini books, for more information and examples.

    That is such a cute idea & a great way to get kids/teens involved in a new hobby. (Something other than tv, wii, texting… etc!)

    Lucky YOU, on the Uno cards… want to trade lists? LOL!

    No, really, I’m sooo glad she’s still into dolls. She’s growing up too fast as it is, so as long as she’s still playing with those… I feel like I still have a LITTLE girl! 🙂

    Have a GREAT week, Andi!

    I agree Deana! Our gaming days are popular, get them into the library and open opportunities for us to converse with them about books and drum up interest in other library programs, but this project shows that you can make something with very little in supplies.
