Make Art, Give a Book a Second Life


“Fold Me” by Brother Mark Gubbels

Plough Library invites CBU students, faculty, and staff to transform discarded library books into new artistic creations with its 2nd Annual Sustain-a-Book contest!. The goal is to breathe new life into books that might otherwise get recycled into pulp. You can find old books to use on the Library’s “Free Books” shelf in the library foyer.

Submit all entries to Plough Library by 4:30 p.m., Friday, April 17. Winners will be announced on Earth Day, April 22. Prizes are Amazon gift cards: $75 for 1st Place, $50 for 2nd Place, and $25 for 3rd Place. See contest rules and get a printable entry form at
