Floodlines exhibition at Hervey Bay Library ‘Floodlines’ is a three-part interactive exhibition from the State Library that tells the tale of Queensland’s devastating 20102011 fl oods. A series of iPads in the exhibition use an app to convert seemingly innocuous slips of paper into digitised records of fl oodaffected townships. Users can adjust the date or time of day and watch on the iPad screen while the fl ood level rises around the miniaturised buildings. Lou Collings, community librarian at the Hervey Bay Library, said that staff and visitors were really impressed by the exhibition. “This is the fi Library that uses digital technology,” Lou said. An interactive digital mosaic of poignant photos taken by the public during the fl oods, along with a selection of videodiaries from the public, comprise the remaining sections of the incredible exhibition. rst exhibition by the State Ron Vestris (pictured) has been a volunteer for the library for more than six years now and the spritely 91-year-old has already mastered the technology used in Floodlines. “I think it’s marvellous,” Ron said. Floodlines will be at the Hervey Bay Library until November 8. Spring Sensations A New Season - A NEW Y OU! ONE STOP SHOP FOR CONVENIENCE!
