I have a friend who has a mission: to repair the books in her children's library. The books have been literally falling apart, and there just isn't enough money in the budget to replace them as they are worn out. This is where Jennifer stepped in, to do her bit. And well, her project has been growing. She's repairing books. (Today she returned 77 repaired books to the library.) She's teaching others how to repair books. And she's looking at starting a non-profit organization to keep on doing just that.
Now she has a blog, and is starting to post tutorials on how to extend the life of the books, so the children will have access to them for a longer period of time. Today's tutorial is on how to apply clear contact paper to the cover of a paperback book. If you're interested in her project, I suggest you stop on by her blog, "One Book at at Time".
