Libraries Go “Outside the Box” with Redbox

A webinar with the Outside the Box program exploring how libraries are leveraging the placemaking process to build community engagement through local entertainment events.

Outside the Box is an innovative program that is focused on enriching communities by bringing people together for free, fun, public entertainment experiences. In this pilot program, five public libraries teamed up with Redbox, America’s Destination for Entertainment. Led by the local communities, with support from OCLC, and guidance by consultants from the Project for Public Spaces, the initiative explores “placemaking,” an approach that breathes life and community connection into public spaces. This webinar will showcase placemaking activities at the pilot libraries, as well as share best practices and perspectives on community engagement from program partners.

Presented by:

  • Megan Knapp, Project Manager, OCLC
  • Elena Madison, Vice President, Project for Public Spaces
  • Hallie Rich, Marketing and Communications Director, Cuyahoga County Public Library

Start time: 2:00 Eastern / 11:00 Pacific
