“Highland Park (Ill.) Public Library celebrated its 125th anniversary with the lobby installation of a 12-foot sculpture made of card catalog cards. The design, created by Crystal Grover and Linsey Burritt of Chicago-based design studio INDO, used more than 17,000 used card catalog cards to craft a textural piece of art called Open Book.

In addition to the sculpture, there is an interactive card catalog with drawers of book-related questions. Patrons answer the questions about favorite characters or reading moments, and can write those thoughts on a used card catalog card, as well as read what other patrons have noted.”
