A Book’s-eye View of Library Circulation

by Jesse M

Recently, librarians at Invercargill City Libraries in New Zealand wondered what it would look like if they attached a video camera to a library book as it circulated. It turns out it’s pretty cool! Check out the short video they made, which chronicles the journey of a library book from when it is first pulled from the stacks to when it is re-shelved for the next patron to browse upon it:

If you enjoyed that, you might also enjoy other videos shot from unique perspectives inside libraries. I’ve blogged previously about two videos by Nate Bolt–one provides a drone’s perspective on the iconic New York Public Library main branch and the other on BookOps, the book sorting center for both NYPL and Brooklyn Public Library.
