DIY Librarian Wallet

DIY Librarian Wallet
by Hannah Schilperoort



I love DIY culture. I’m not the most artistic person in the world, but I like to make functional objects.  I learned how to make duct tape wallets a few years ago by watching one of the many instructional videos on YouTube.  I made this particular wallet, made only from duct tape and my ALA membership card, especially for this artsy Descriptor issue.  Every time I open my wallet, I will be reminded of my chosen profession!

hannah_picHannah Schilperoort is slowly making her way through SLIS one class at a time, following mostly the public and academic library pathways, with a plan to graduate in Spring 2016. Born in Seattle, WA and raised in Northern California, she now lives in Pittsburgh, PA, a city that has provided her with a variety of professional opportunities for which she is grateful (although she has plans to return to the West coast). She currently works as a library assistant at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and as an information literacy instructor at Duquesne University.  She also volunteers in the William R. Oliver Special Collections room at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, where she processes archival collections and creates finding aids.  When she’s not studying or working, Hannah likes to ride her bicycle, run, read classics and science fiction, and bake gluten free goodies.
