Display cases are available at both of Coquitlam Public Library's branches, for use by individuals and organizations based in the Tri-Cities area (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody). These glass cases may be used to display works of an artistic nature, crafts, artifacts and archival material.

The case is viewed from the front:
