Description: 

Libraries and Museums have so much in common! We’re both cultural institutions that promote lifetime learning, encourage civic engagement, and connect people to ideas. So why not learn from each other?

Join Librarians Rebecca Hopman of the The Rakow Research Library at the Corning Museum of Glass, Kara West of the San Diego Public Library, and Erinn Paige of New Canaan Library for an exciting look at how each of these places—a research library, a large urban library, and a small municipal library—are working to bridge the gap between museum and library service to support the creative life of their communities.

We’ll share examples of successful spaces, partnerships, and programs from each of these libraries that are practical and scalable, so you can transform your library into an incubator for the arts!
