Westfield Memorial Library Presents Repurposing Workshop

This is how one library repurposed its old books

The Westfield Memorial Library is pleased to present “Repurposing: New Uses for Old Things” on Wednesday, April 9 at 6:30 p.m. The library is located at 550 East Broad Street.

Presenter Karen Camden, who has spoken previously at the library about clutter control and gardening, will present this program. She will share how to go beyond recycling and get creative by finding new uses for old things. “If you go to yard sales or antique shows and can see endless potential there, this is the workshop for you,” she said.

Karen is also the President of Camden Associates, a consulting firm that provides services in Communications and People Skills, Organizational Assessments and Clutter Control. She has taught many popular computer classes at the library as well.
