To open conversation with the public, I created this interactive public display board for the

Victoria Native Friendship Centre's ~ Bruce Parisian Library during my UVic Co-op Position. 

I completed this on March 26, 2019 ~ it was on display Summer 2019.


 This interactive display is10 ft wide by 5 ft tall       

  Created large to draw attention to receive patron input.


Two portions of the display:

a Book Wishes Display and a Book Wish Box. 













The Book Wish Display          The Wish Box

where patrons can see book wishes                 the place for patrons to

         (little books flying away)                               make their Book Wish

~ books are drawn to look like               ~ books patrons wish to see

dandelion seeds flying~                                 upon the shelves,

Each have                                                within the collection

ISBN #'s and book titles                              of the Bruce Parisian Library~

on little papers

for patrons to take with them,

should they wish to fulfill a wish.
