Plough Library's repurposed book art contest, Sustain-a-Book, is back for spring 2019. Take an old, worn-out book and make something new! Enter by April 8, 2019 for a chance to win one of three prizes.


  • CBU students, faculty, and staff can enter the contest
  • Use an old book of your own, or take one from our Free Books shelves in the library. Please only use books in poor condition.
  • You may use more than one book, along with other discarded paper material (newspaper, magazines).
  • You may use other materials, as long as a book is part of the finished piece.
  • Make something of any size, preferably under three feet square in dimension. (NOTE: Larger items will not be disqualified but may be more difficult to accommodate in a library display of contest entries.)


  • 1st Place - $60 gift card
  • 2nd Place - $40 gift card
  • 3rd Place - $20 gift card

The contest deadline is 8 p.m., Monday, April 8, 2019!
