The Grandview Heights Public Library has launched a new exhibit project that combines wonder, engagement, and learning with all-in-one, interactive mobile kiosks for all ages.
GHPL Mobile Exhibits are compact, museum-quality kiosks featuring:
- Showcases for artifacts and specimens
- Engaging, educational visuals
- Craft table for all ages
- Interactive touchscreen
- Book displays
The project is funded with private money by the Grandview Heights Public Library Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to raise private funds to ensure the long-term financial security of the library and enhance its services to serve the community. Recent Foundation projects include the GHPL PopUp Library and WiFi in Grandview Parks.
In its inaugural collaboration, the library has partnered with the Museum of Biological Diversity at The Ohio State University to present Natural Wonders, a series of exhibitions featuring specimens and educational content from the museum.
The first exhibition of this series, entitled Skeletons, Disguises, and Creatures of the Night, features three interactive kiosks at the library during business hours through December 1, 2017. Museum specimens on display include bats, fish, birds, and insects.
