Library Card Coffee Table July 26, 2012 – Tags: , ,

Tom Groves had an idea. He wanted to gather a collection of library cards from around the country for an art project. He emailed over 200 libraries across the country to see if they would be interested in sending him library cards.

The final project would be determined by the amount of cards he received. “In the end, the number he got fit more or less perfectly on one of the coffee tables in the library,” so that’s what he did.

He covered one of the existing coffee tables with the cards and then sealed them with a protective epoxy.

This sign sits on the new table and explains the project.

It would be great to see one of these in every state library featuring the library cards of the state.
