I’m designing a new kind of mobile library for Vancouver parks and orphaned spaces and I need your help!
The City Living Room is a pilot project expected to launch late this summer in the West End. It’s about recreating the library as a “third place”, or a comfortable public place that fosters informal community interaction. The library collection will change according to community input and interest.
What would you like to see in your neighbourhood park? Would you like a workshop on how to grow a vegetable garden? Or are you interested in string theory or motorcycles? Would you like workshops, community conversations, screenings?
Join the conversation at the Roundhouse Community Centre on Monday, March 11th from 6-8PM.
I’m a 4th year Emily Carr design student and this is my graduation project. Vancouver Public Library is prepared to supply materials and support. Supported by Vancouver Public Library, the West End Community Planning Team, and the Vancouver Foundation Small Neighbourhood Grant
Feel free to pass this on to whoever you think might be interested!
