Halloween Book Crafts

Library Approved Halloween Book Crafts

Hello again!

Fall is definitely in full swing and Halloween is on the way! If you are still looking for some inspiration for crafts this season, just look to books! Working in a library I see plenty of unsavory print materials that take the long ride in the D-I-S-C-A-R-D bin- to that quaint farm far away where other books roam and run free… 😉 .

This Halloween season, grab a book or two from your local Good Will to create your Halloween crafts. “Check out” these Library Approved Halloween Book Crafts from around the web!
