Take a story and Create another

This project aims to improve the Mini Little Libraries present in Delft. The main problem observed is that citizens do not use MiniBieb because of the “bad” perceived quality of the books. This negative mindset creates an unconscious loop that won’t allow possible users to be involved in the system until broken. 

The interaction with “Take a story & Create another” motivates visitors to bring interesting books to the free shared library (Design goal). This desired interaction should feel like planting a seed in a garden, an uncertain, generous, promising, planned, and intimate activity (Interaction Vision).
