Interactive Display Board
~ Library Book Wishes ~
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.
