10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
at the Parkway Central Library
Free Library of Philadelphia
1901 Vine Street

Free and open to the public!

This festive book fair features prints, artists' books, handmade paper, zines, origami, blank books, paper sculpture, and jewelry, all made by local artists. If it's paper-based art, it's here!

Free book-making workshops for all ages will also be offered at the Library the day of the fair. Space is limited - please email events@philadelphiacenterforthebook.org to reserve your spot for the morning workshop.

For Adults and Teens:
Hidden Books
11:00 a.m. - Noon, Room 108
Within every sheet of paper is a hidden book lying in wait. We will discover how to make several of these single sheet structures. You'll leave with samples and the know-how to embed your own content into these functional, quick books!

For Kids and Families:
Pop-ups
2:00 -.3:00 p.m., Room 108 - walk-ins ok
Making pop-ups is easy - just cut, fold, and pop! We will explore paper engineering techniques to make cards that jump off the page! Students will learn the basics, including v-fold, layers, and simple tabs, to make your own personalized pop-up creations. Animate holiday cards, build abstract kinetic cards, and more. This workshop is for all ages and levels of experience.

Sponsored by The Philadelphia Center for the Book and the Art Department of the Free Library of Philadelphia.
