Washington Library Project

As Youth Liaison Officer for Sunderland Library Services Nicola worked with groups of young people to develop their own elements to the library. Through community consultations and workshops the production of a young persons area to the library was developed directed by a steering group of young people, new furniture and vinyl art works designed by young people for walls and windows were another element to this project.

The first two examples below were developed by young people in the Washington areas used as bookstand end panels in their Washington Library, the third shows images developed by the steering group of the project from Pit Stop Youth Centre looking at places young people hang out in their area.
