Hack This! Help sort books

When users hand in their books by them selves, they are sorting them on bookshelves themselves. Even though Valby Library only have 3 categories, there is quite often mixes up between "Adult" "Children" and "non-fiction".Valby Library would like a system, where there is some kind of reaction from the book shelves, according to whether the books are placed correct or incorrect.This could be by using the bookchips, or something else, that is your idea entirely.

Hack This! Number system for waiting customers

·    Valby Library is not just a library, the building also hold the Citizen Service centre. This means that a lot of people come into the library, draw a number and start waiting for their turn. Therefore a crowd of waiting citizens block the entrance to the library, for themselves AND for the users who are actually there for the books.

Copenhagen libraries activities LED board

This board shows activities of Copenhagen libraries by LED blinking. Blinking probability is based on statistics of libraries activities that means the more active the library is the more blinking it has. Statistics are in the tabel which shows the activities for months January to August of 2014.

MERRY -GO-ROUND Book Shelf for kids in the library

My Goal is to create a small Merry-Go- Round Book Shelf for small kids in order to combine fun with untroducing the small kids to their first books.

The most challenge was for me to use the first time the 3 D Design Program and the 3 D Printer.

Our Solution:
- building an interactive map of Valby library

Approach:
- Boxmaker made box
- Arduino control of lighting

Materials:

Multifunctional childrens furniture for Valby Library

This is a project I did on Fabcreation, in Fablab Copenhagen for Valby Library.
The library is in lack of seating space. and have horribly boring exhibition-shelves... so I figured I would combine those two into one fun, colourful and comfortable furniture.

Interactive Map of Valby Library

Problem Statement:
-Valby library is divided into a number of sections. Users of the library have problems finding their way to these sections

Our Solution:
- building an interactive map of Valby library
(five buttons - one for each of the sections in the library. Each button press activates lightning up of the corresponding area on the map showing the way to reach the section of interest)

Approach:
- lasercut box (Boxmaker extension for Inkscape)
- Arduino controlled lighting (extended Analog Sketch and LEDs)

Animatronic Sign for Kids

The project aims to produce an initial working prototype of an animated sign for the book shelves into the kids section in the Valby library (Copenhagen, Denmark).

The prototype will serve to show the potential of having interactive signs in the room because it can improve the kids overall experience of visiting the room and selecting books by visualizing the theme providing them a funny and useful interaction.
