About

I got started because I worked at the Library.

When I worked at the Charlotte, NC Library, everyone read on their lunch break. We all were trying to eat and keep out books open at the same time. We only had two staplers to use--they worked better than anything else. I just knew there had to be a better way. The Open Book Zoo was born because of my need to read and eat at the same time. I sew and quilt, so I decided I could make them. I decided on animals because I love them and there is so much variety. I made one for everyone who worked there (35 at the time), and they seemed to go over pretty well. From there I have just progressed. I really like to read, and I have found they work great in other places, too, like the pool and the beach. I can lay on my chair and get my back tan and not have to hold my book open. Plus I don't eat! Gotta love that.
