Hack This! The Librarian Robot

The library is now open for self-service. This means that once the librarians is off duty, users can still loan and deliver books. It would be cool with a librarian robot, to help users in these closed after-hours. Tasks that the robot should be able do to, could be everything from recommending books to whatever you would like a librarian to help you with.

Hack This! Library Guide

Valby Library would like a guide or an app that can help users find their way around the library. Possibly something like Google Streetview inside the library.

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.

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.

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.
