Diary of a Library - Artists Books from the Card Catalog

Artists books donated to Diary of a Library, the repurposed card catalog created during TCPL's Sesquicentennial Year 2014, can be seen on display in the Avenue of the Friends.

These tiny 3" x 5" books were created by local book artists including Werner Sun, Parbara Page, students in a workshop presented by Laurie Snyder and many others to help celebrate 150 years of Library Service to our community.  Together with hundreds of library card catalog cards, contributed by members of the community of all ages, these books will be stored in an historic card catalog, displayed in the Avenue of the Friends and are available for all to browse through.

Members of the public are invited to continue contributing cards to add to the catalog.  Tell us your library story, or tell us your favorite book.  Pick up a card, write your story and drop it off in the box provided.  As with all library catalogs whether digital or on cards, Diary of a Library will continue to evolve and we will add new cards whenever they are contributed.
