"The Artist's Library offers the idea that an artist is any person who uses creative tools to make new things, and the guidance and resources to make libraries of all sizes and shapes come alive as spaces for art-making and cultural engagement. Case studies included in the book range from the crafty (pop-up books) to the community-minded (library galleries) to documentary (photo projects) to the technically complex ('listening' to libraries via Dewey decimal frequencies). The Library as Incubator Project was created by Erinn Batykefer, Laura Damon-Moore, and Christina Endres. It highlights the ways that libraries and artists can work together, and works to strengthen these partnerships. By calling attention to one of the many reasons libraries are important to our communities and our culture, it provides a dynamic online forum for sharing ideas."-- Provided by publisher.

I really enjoyed the creative suggestions in this little book! It is all about getting to know your library and finding ways to use it as a creative space. It includes prompts and excercises for individuals as well as information about collaborating with the library for groups and organizations. Many of the exercises are about finding new ways to look at and/or approach your creative endeavors. They trigger new ways of thinking and new insights. A lovely book for any creative person to work through at their library!
