Does this yarnbombing tag make you want to visit a library?

One of my classes this semester has me studying what is called Cataloging-in-Publication (CIP), specifically, data about the book's classification via Dewey cataloging and the Library of Congress schedule.

The publisher prints this information on an inside page called the “verso,” just after the title page.

So I was savoring “Yarn Bombing” by Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain on my second check-out from the library and looking at its CIP gave me a cool idea:

Make a yarnbombing tag with a book’s Dewey number and put it up at a public library. Patrons can then go inside and check the non-fiction stacks.
