Celebrate Automation with Creation

Peacham Library
Peacham, Vermont

In 2010, Peacham Library completed a transition from the traditional card catalog to a new automated library system. To celebrate this triumph, the library invited members of the community to take as many catalog cards as they'd like to create something new, whether it be artistic, literary, or just something different. "Patrons took on the challenge and created jewelry, a poem, clothing, a bulletin board, masks, a game, 3D scenes, a fishing pole, and a cat puppet." The winner of the creation contest was 13-year-old Julia Fickes, who created a "dress designed in a style popular in Jane Austen books, with Jane Austin check-out cards used for the bodice."
