Empty Shelf Syndrome

Empty shelf syndrome

As collections migrate off site, existing stack structures will be reworked as curated exhibition and experience spaces.


  1. Find empty library shelves in the library.
  2. Use your imagination to consider what the shelves can display without books.
  3. Curate an exhibit using art, interesting objects etc. on the shelves.
  4. Invite patrons to curate the shelves based on their own experiences and expertise.
