The Tiny Library

Here are some little books to print out to make a tiny library of books.

If you cut and fold blank sheets of paper and glue them together,

you can make tiny sketch books or write your own story. Be creative!

Make your own little library of tiny books.
Print out one of the book pages
Cut out the pieces.
Score along the blue lines to make folding easier and fold in a zig zag as shown.
Glue the strips together to make one long piece.
Put a thin layer of glue on the spine.
Cut a small piece of paper to cover the spine. This will help keep the pages together.
Clamp the spine with a binder clip and let dry.
Find a piece of origami paper or construction for the cover. Trace around the book pages as shown.
Score and fold the book cover.
Tuck the first and last pages of your tiny book inside the book cover. Add a bit of glue inside the cover to hold the cover in place.

Glue on your cover art.

Now your tiny book is ready to read.


“One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person,

perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years."

To read is to voyage through time.” ~ Carl Sagan
