Hello it's nice to meet you (again)

When's the last time you said hello to your library?

Was it a year ago? Five? Ten? It's OK. You can be honest.

It's time we reintroduced ourselves.

Outside the Lines: Libraries Reintroduced

Sept. 13-19, 2015

OUTSIDE THE LINES is a weeklong celebration to reconnect you with the creativity, technology, discovery and all of the fun and unexpected experiences happening in libraries today – think: 3D printers, ebooks, woodworking classes, personal job search help, laptop checkouts, biz incubators, seed libraries, recording studios...the list goes on.

2014 Participating Organizations

Organizations across the United States and Canada came together during Outside the Lines by hosting events and campaigns in their local communities demonstrating the innovation and creativity happening in libraries.
