Have you ever visited the Library and paused to admire a display case full of paintings, crafts, jewelry or pottery? The items you see in those cases are from local artists and organizations, and we welcome display applications from exhibitors in the Tri-Cities!
Last October, artists from Pottery Works displayed their work in celebration of Community Inclusion Month.
More recently, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Multicultural ECD Services staff Ada Sin and two parent volunteers, Cherry Y. and Adeline S., joined forces to create a display celebrating Lunar New Year. Included in the festive display are picture books, crafts made by their children, puppets, traditional clothing for kids and tidbits of information about Lunar New Year celebrations. The display will be up at the City Centre branch until March 2, so make sure to check it out next time you’re visiting the branch!
Library staff teamed up for a display at the Poirier branch, inspired by Creativebug’s art and craft tutorials. We crocheted, knitted, painted, carved, sewed and built all kinds of items, resulting in a colourful and creative display.
Keep your eyes peeled for more upcoming displays such as the BC Summer Games by Coquitlam Archives, a photo display by Dogwood Photo Group, and of course, a Summer Reading Club themed display from the Library.
If you’re interested in showing a display, visit our Display webpage to learn more and submit your application. A member of our Display Cases team will get in touch soon afterwards.
