Sign out a free family membership to the New Children’s Museum at any San Diego Library
You and your family can enjoy all the benefits of membership to San Diego’s New Children’s Museum for free! The San Diego New Children’s Museum is proud to launch Check Out The New Children’s Museum in partnership with San Diego Public Library. This innovative program provides area families unlimited access to the Museum, with circulating membership cards available for check out at each city library branch.
When library patrons check out a New Children’s Museum membership card at a branch library, they receive full membership benefits at the Museum. This includes free admission to the galleries for up to two adults and all children in the household, hands-on art projects in the studios, as well as discounts at the cafe and store.
“The purpose of the program is to make the Museum accessible to the widest possible audience by eliminating price as a barrier,” said Rachel Teagle, Executive Director of the Museum. “The New Children’s Museum and San Diego Public Library share a commitment to educating children and families, and to providing San Diego’s downtown with vibrant community resources, and we’re thrilled to partner on this unique effort.”
“Creative partnerships like this are particularly important during these tough economic times,” said Deborah Barrow, San Diego Public Library Director. “Families are increasingly turning to their libraries for free resources, cultural connections and recreational opportunities. The chance to Check Out The New Children’s Museum will open a whole new world of creative exploration for the young and those who are young at heart.”
The San Diego Central Library and each of the 35 branch libraries in the City of San Diego will have two circulating New Children’s Museum memberships available for checkout, beginning February 17, 2009. In addition to providing posters at branch libraries, the Museum has also designated a website to further promote the partnership. Check Out The New Children’s Museum is made possible by generous support from Ford Motor Company Fund and Qualcomm.
The San Diego New Children’s Museum is located at 200 West Island Avenue in Downtown San Diego and is easily accessible from the MTS Convention Center Trolley stop, Seaport Village and the Gaslamp Quarter.
