March is National Craft Month!
Welcome to March! We’re delighted to partner once again with our friends at The Library as Incubator Project for National Craft Month. Throughout March, we will be test-driving craft projects that riff on this year’s Teen Summer Reading Program, “Beneath the Surface.”
Tune into the Library as Incubator Project and Teen Librarian Toolbox every Friday in March for a new craft tutorial. We’ve got some cool ideas cooking, including story terrariums, transparency posters, peel-away quote art, and more! All of the TLT posts will be archived under the TPiB heading.
We’ll also be collecting our tutorials and your ideas on our Nat’l Craft Month 2013 / Teen Summer Reading Program Jumpstart Pinterest board, so feel free to share your favorite resources and the cool arts-incubating crafts you’ve got planned for your library!
Share your crafts!

And coming in the fall, our Second Annual It Came from a Book teen art contest, sponsored by Teen Librarian Toolbox, The Library as Incubator Project, EgmontUSA, and Zest Books. We’ll officially be announcing all the information at ALA Annual, but you can get a look at last year’s contest here if you are not familiar with it.
