Announcing the RE:BOOK 2012 Contest

Most of us have old paperbacks, printouts, magazines, textbooks, or notebooks lying around that are falling apart or have generally seen better days. Instead of recycling, how about a little creative repurposing that could net you (modest) fame and (a small amount of) fortune?

In honor of National Library Week, April 8-14, the Claremont Colleges Library is now accepting entries for RE:BOOK, our first annual repurposed paper art contest. You can be as innovative as you like with your submission, but *please note that you absolutely should not repurpose Library or otherwise viable books!* The idea of this contest is to give worn or cast-off pages new life.


Students, faculty, and staff are eligible to enter, but only students will be considered for the grand prize of a $250 Amazon gift certificate for the best submission. If you need material, try looking through our free item donation carts near the North entrance of the Library. Or a recycling bin.

Throw your hat in the ring online. RE:BOOKs must be submitted to the Library's Services Desk by 5 pm on Friday April 13. We'll have a RE:BOOK celebration, display, and prize giveaway on Tuesday April 17th at 3:30 in the Honnold/Mudd Founders Room.
