Over 100 libraries across the U.S. and Canada are participating in Outside the Lines, a weeklong celebration from Sept. 14-20, demonstrating the creativity and innovation happening in libraries. This campaign is designed to reintroduce libraries to their communities and get people thinking – and talking – about these organizations in a whole new way.
Outside the Lines is aimed at helping people understand how libraries have changed into dynamic centers for engagement. Participating libraries are connecting with their communities through creative, unexpected activities meant to demonstrate how libraries are more relevant than ever before.
