Your guide to utilizing the library as a gallery space and center for the arts is here. LIBRARY OUT LOUD illustrates the power of programming to draw attention to the library as a cultural center.

Typically, when you think of the world's most prestigious civic institution [the public library], you generally think about the books. However, we speak out for libraries to help you "think beyond the books." 

poets at the library

Our goal is to promote the library as a place for all things information. Sure, you may read a book to study poetry yet we invite you to attend a spoken word workshop at the library. You may read a book to study music yet we invite you to take piano lessons at the library. You may read a book to study art techniques yet we invite you to take art lessons at the library. And of course, you may read a book jacket to learn more about an author yet we invite you to attend an author meet and greet at the library.

In essence, we don't want you to merely go to the library; we want you to "experience the library." Your friends at LIBRARY OUT LOUD are here to help you "bring your library to life" and redefine your expectations of the library. We channel library assessments to broadcast the beauty of public libraries.
