Story Pod Project - Grassroots Transformation of Civic Space

Newmarket’s story pod was launched in 2015 in partnership with HollisWealth Inc., AKB, Scholastic and the Newmarket Public Library. The pod welcomes residents and visitors to read, learn, find inspiration, share stories and engage with the community. In turn. During the day, two of the walls pivot open like the covers of a book, welcoming people inside or to gather around the front.  Visitors can take or leave something to read, or lounge quietly on the built-in seating.  At night, when the doors are locked, recessed, energy efficient LED lights, powered by concealed, self-sustaining solar panels on the roof, glow through the lattice work like a lantern, providing ambience for night markets or community events.
