A Word from Kelly Liberona of Upcycled Library

Upcycled Library was born out of a love for books and library nostalgia. I was an English major myself and I looooooved all of my literature classes, reading great works and talking about their meaning. From there I went on to graduate school and received a masters in Library and Information Science, so technically I really am a librarian—I don't just play one on Etsy! 

Upcycled Library has provided me this awesome creative outlet where I can give old books new life. Who wouldn't want to rock their favorite book in a necklace or on their living room wall?

I seek to incorporate the traditional paper book into everyday life in this day and age of digital. I make bookish items that I think other book nerds would like as much as I do. 

I call it a "library" because I use library due date cards and Dewey decimal numbers throughout my work and regard my customer's orders as permanent "check outs" of titles. No need to worry about fines here! 

I also have a strong sense of environmental responsibility which is why I love upcycling so much. All books used in my products have been previously read and loved and then I upcycle them into something new. I try as much as I can to use recycled materials for all aspects of my business and products and I try to create minimal waste.

Dear English Majors: know that you can do anything you want! No dream is too big or out of reach. Live that bookish life!
