As Artist in Residence at Gloucester Library for a brief stint in 2017, I found out that the staff were finding work at the library quite challenging, but they also had a camaraderie and enjoyed making giant puzzles together.
I devised a set of games tapping into my conversations with members of staff about working there. Each staff member had their own game, delivered in packages through the library system and easy to replicate and use. They were created in Google docs and printed on A4 copy paper.
With many thanks to the staff and to Hannah Brady, Creative Producer, for support in the residency – part of the Art of Libraries project for Gloucestershire.
