Origami Cranes for National Libraries Week 2017

In October 2017 it was National Libraries Week. Wokingham Library celebrated it by challenging the public to make 1000 origami cranes from old book paper. An ancient Japanese Legend says that whoever folds 1000 paper cranes will be granted happiness and eternal good luck. It took us longer that the week to complete this task and by the start of November we had 1000 cranes displayed at Wokingham Library.

Many people have asked us what we’ve done with all the cranes. After displaying them until the new year we took them down and posted them to Cranes For Cancer in America. They collect cranes and deliver baskets or vases full of cranes to cancer patients.

Thank you for all your help making these cranes.

Watch this space, in June 2018  we will have a new challenge for you!
