Craft Supplies

Need old magazines or book covers for a craft project?

We can provide access to old issues of magazines and some book jackets (while supplies last) to 7C students, faculty, and staff interested in using them for a school or craft project. To request these supplies, please email us at

Button Makers

The Library owns two button presses for making 1″ or 2.25″ pins. Button makers must be reserved ahead of time and can be borrowed by current faculty, staff, and students of The Claremont Colleges.

  • We provide enough supplies to make about 50 buttons.
  • The button makers can be reserved for up to three days at a time.
  • Each user may check out a button maker and supply kit twice per academic year. (Users are welcome to borrow the button makers additional times if they provide their own supplies.)
  • Please allow up to two business days to process your button maker request.

Reserve the button maker by filling out the Button Maker Request Form.
