The Santa Cruz Public Library is revisioning its role as a community resource and as a public building.
Last year, the Library participated as a TEAM in Artist JR’s Global Art Project (see video below)
The success of that participation has inspired a new installation for the year 2013- Santa Cruz Printmaker Bridget Henry has been awarded a commission to install her images in a temporary installation beginning on August 2013’s First Friday, lasting into the winter months.
Your Identity – Our Identity – The Identity of the Library as a Public Resource
Last year, the Library chose a quote from a Guardian UK article by Bella Bathurst:
“Turns out Libraries have nothing at all to do with Silence.”
In all, almost 100 photos were taken of at least 60 different people.

After a successful installation Downtown, the photos are currently up in Branch Libraries throughout the County.
