A Biblioclast historically carries a definition of a person who burns, mutilates, or destroys books, however not all biblioclasts are nefarious. At this fall art program, we will recast books as an art medium in support of libraries, books, words, and ideas. Join us in a transformation of damaged or poor condition books into original works of art by folding, cutting, manipulating and carving covers and paper pages. Create a book pumpkin for the fall and fashion stylish book leaves.

Join us for this month's book club by reading The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison. Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage. Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago, as she, the killer, and he, the victim, rush haplessly toward the main event. He is a committed cheater. She lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds. She likes to settle scores. He decides to play for keeps. She has nothing left to lose. Told in alternating voices, this novel is about a marriage in the throes of dissolution, a couple headed for catastrophe, concessions that can't be made, and promises that won't be kept. Reserve it.
