'The Public Collection' is a miniature library that is designed to improve literacy rates in the Indianapolis area. In recent years, pop-up libraries have become a popular way to encourage reading. This miniature book station puts an artistic twist on the idea of an outdoor library.

The Public Collection is an Indianapolis-based project that helps raise awareness for education and social justice. The pop-up library was designed by Rachel M. Simon as a way to combine art and literacy. Simon's called on nine local artists to design book stations that would also double as sculptural works The result is a miniature library that helps improve local literacy and foster a new appreciation for the arts.

The beautiful book stations demonstrate how different artistic mediums can be used to strength a community.
