To serve the evergreen but particularly of-the-moment interests in saving money and the planet, crafts and DIY books are blowing up and ranging wide. From foraging for your own plants for dyeing fiber to building the containers in which you grow vegetables, crafts and DIY books are no longer just about knitting socks or tiling your bathroom (although you’ll find new takes on that, too). And what better way to save money and the planet than to get your guidance from the library? These collections need constant refreshing as styles and tools constantly evolve, and publishing in this area continues to grow.
