The Technology of the Library Living Lab was present at the festivity of Sant Cugat’s Giant Book last Sunday.

This festivity unites illustrators and children in an event in which the younger ones invent a short story and the illustrators give life the story with an image. The compilation of all the ilustrated stories then gets binded into a book which is set up for public consulting. This year, the festivity was a little different, and with CVC and the Library Living Lab’s technology, the illustrations were scanned and uploaded to an open account in Instagram and Twitter in order to give the collection an extra value.

The event was a success and more than 130 stories where created and digitised. The picture album can be found at Instagram here:
