Interactive Display: “Library Therapy”

twitterMCKFB_LIKE

Based on an idea called “Subway Therapy” in NYC created by artist Matthew Chavez that has exploded in popularity and received much news coverage, the library has created its own form of the project called “Library Therapy.”

The “Subway Therapy” idea was solely based on the election, but the library’s display is less restrictive in theme. Visitors are invited to write anything they are thinking or feeling or need or want to offer on any topic they choose on a post-it and stick it to the display board. Some examples so far are: “Protect communities more vulnerable than yours” and “I need a hug.” We also have bookmarks created by Counseling Services that people can take with them and know that if they need extra support, Counseling Services is there and waiting to assist.

The display is located on the 1st FL of the library next to the Information Desk. Please come and let your voice be heard.
