When Columbia Pike’s Youth Services Librarian began moving her puppets and craft supplies to a storage area more convenient to her office space she found reels and reels of children’s filmstrips hidden behind rolls of butcher paper. Before deciding to dispose of them she recruited local artist/librarian/social media maven Alexandra Zealand to consider re-purposing them into art.
Alexandra created these whimsical sculptures from reels of filmstrips of the books Abel’s Island, The Witch Who was Afraid of Witches, and From the mixed-up files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, and they now hang above the children’s DVD collection at the Columbia Pike Branch Library.
Come check out the quirky yet lovely recycled artwork.
Thank you Alexandra!
