This month in the HUB we’re repurposing vinyl records into small notebooks. Stop by, make your notebook and complete a challenge for the teen summer Read to the Rhythm program!
 
Too busy? Don’t fret – here are the instructions for you to tackle this project at home!
 
 
SAFETY FIRST – use protective eyewear while scoring and breaking your record to the perfect size!
 
1.       Cut record to the size for notebook cover.
· Use ruler and utility knife to score* vinyl.
*Run blade along ruler to cut shallow channel on surface of record.
· Use the edge of a table to break record along scored line.
2.       Prepare pages of your notebook.
· Cut pages to size – about the length of the cover laid flat.
· Fold in half to form a book.
· Use stapler or thread to bind pages.
3.       Construct your notebook.
·  Align cover and pages of notebook.
· Use duct tape to form cover. Tape along flat edges leaving room for the thickness of your notebook pages.
· Attach first and last page to the front and back cover to form the notebook.

Hi, I’m Kerry, the new Tween Librarian!  A few summers ago, you may have seen me around Kid’s World helping out with Summer Reading. Now, I’m lucky enough to get to hang out in Kid’s World AND the Hub. Best. job. ever. You might even see me visiting your school this fall.

A few random facts about me:

I am a wannabe foodie and love trying (and usually messing up) new recipes.

I have been a runner since jr. high, and I can’t go more than a few days without going for a run.

I have a cat named Izzy who is currently rocking a sweet lion haircut.

I love to travel, but when I can’t, I read about it instead. I am a sucker for a good love story, but I equally love action-packed dystopian novels. I’m always looking for my next favorite book, so let me know what you’re reading!

Stop by the Hub and say hi!
