Simply print the image on both sides of a sheet of card stock, cut, and attach with string. The odds of you keeping track of your USB throughout the summer will greatly increase!

The Three ‘R’s: A Solar System Craft Story

by Jan Douglas, Branch Library Assistant, Union Road Branch, Gastonia, NC

We know the three ‘R’s in public education stand for reading, writing, and arithmetic.  For public libraries, it might well stand for recycle, reuse, and repurpose.  A good example presented itself during the wrap up of our 2018 summer reading program.  With music as the theme, we had staff and patrons generously donate LP’s, 45’s, and CD’s for our use.  Knowing the theme for our 2019 summer reading program is space, it was not a far stretch to envision these same donations being recycled next year as the solar system.  An example of an LP reused for this purpose is shown in the picture above.  Please note, it is not made to scale and Pluto is included.  Guess aerospace won’t become the library’s fourth ‘R’!
Did you have a program that brought a little music (or actual rocks) to the world this summer? Please send your photos and any informative details to Luke Kralik at: I would love to share them in our newsletter.
