What to Do with That Old Encyclopedia
Posted by: Admin
Wondering what to do with an old print encyclopedia? Here are some Hints from Heloise in response to reader who asked for advice after offering an encyclopedia set to the local library (which wouldn't take it). Besides donating it to a thrift shop, retirement center, or jail, you could:
Give it to a local theater group for set dressing.
Give it to an artist who makes art with altered books, or to an altered-book art group.
Contact a home-schooling organization (the reader who sent this suggestion said her group uses a 1992 set for research, which worries me).
Make a coffee table by using piles of volumes to support a glass top.
