The Floating Library 2014
The Floating Library is an experimental public art project that introduces the creative genre of artists’ books and printed matter to people recreating on an urban lake.

A custom made raft features bookshelves built to hold printed matter for perusal and check out on the water. Patrons in canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, skiffs, rowboats, or even inner tubes are invited to paddle up to the Library and browse the shelves from inside their watercraft.

The Floating Library is a public art project by Sarah Peters. With support from the Minnesota State Arts Board the Library set adrift on two Minnesota Lakes in the summer of 2014: Cedar Lake in Minneapolis and Lake Winona in Winona, Minnesota.
