Week TWO: Jafagirl Residency at Dayton Metro Library Northwest Branch

Charlie with her Flower 
Residency Notes: Week two and we were are not quite as exhausted. We are finding we have to rethink some of our public drop in project ideas after the flower making session is done as they seem rather ambitious given the time constraints as well as age diversity of our drop in library patrons. Our next challenge is trying to figure out how to install the felt flowers in a cohesive way given the different styles and colours. 
On the way out to put up the felt butterflies up in the children's outdoor area we pass the children's reading area. It stopped me in my tracks it's so beautiful and heck do we have to be a kid to sit in this area.  lol. 

WE also installed a rather large plaster cast nose on the wall, the theme being 
"get your nose stuck in a book". 
we finished putting up the felt cafe installation meant to complement Virginia Kistler's gorgeous Ceiling Installation.

Northwest Branch Library

The first step in making the Northwest Library a reality began with conversations with the Library patrons, neighbors and neighborhood groups, and partners including the Phoenix Group, Salem Avenue Business District, and Dayton Public Schools. The shared vision was a 21st century facility that would be a neighborhood anchor and greater Dayton destination, celebrating the site's rich history.
