Dublin Street Library

As it’s the Bram Stoker Festival this weekend, we’ve added the below ourselves to ask you for your input on this DCC Beta.

If you’d like to try out the QR codes yourself, here’s what the sign says (or here are the links for Soft copy of Dracula or Hard Copy of Dracula).

Here’s a conversation that we had on our Facebook page a while back. (Here’s the link to the original if you want to click on any of the links. Later during a web search, we also discovered this by Will http://willknott.ie/2012/06/12/get-me-stickers/ so contacted him on twitter…and we then re-continued the conversation back on our Facebook page below.)

Like most Beta Projects, we’re simply using this as a trigger for your suggestions and ideas and feedback (and also to actually see the on-the-street, real life, reactions and feedback).

  • What do you think of the idea?
  • Could it be useful in some way? How? why?
  • It’s not for everyone (smart phones and QR codes would probably not be inclusive for a large sector of society), so we think that a later version could include traditional web addresses.
  • Any thoughts on how to use it to promote reading or visiting libraries for books (or for any of the other items or services that they provide…for example did you know you can rent art from certain libraries?)?
  • Any suggestions or thoughts about other ways this idea could be explored?

    I am contacting you from JamArt Factory gallery and design shop, just down the road from you on patrick st. We have a new website going live next week JamArt Prints.com that will be selling prints of original works from Irish based artists and we think this could tie in well with your beta projects.

    We already sell prints in the gallery from some of the artists from the traffic light box beta project and they are proving to be very popular. We are trying to give emerging and established artists a professional portal to sell there prints.

    If you think we could assist in your beta projects in some way let me know.

    Thanks John Haybyrne

    Hi there.

    I am a dublin based street artist. I have already carried out a project involving bookshelves with QR codes. I would be very happy to work with DCC in expanding this project in a legitimate way. The idea works and I have been contacted by a few people from around the world who wanted to try the project in their cities. Do please get in touch.

      Hi Littleman, cheers for the message. It would be great to explore the idea a bit more…what way were you thinking? Do you have info on your bookshelf QR code project that you could send on (if you think it would be useful)?
