I designed this pattern because I am a volunteer at the local school library. I really wanted to make small gifts for the librarians with a book or library theme. I googled and googled mug rug bookshelf patterns but could only find patterns for larger mini quilts or full-size quilts. So I created my own mug rug sized bookshelf pattern.
