ArtsNow And Twinsburg Public Library Passes Program
In memory of Joan Domeck, the Twinsburg Library launched this program to provide members with free passes to visit Summit County’s cultural institutions.
In June, ArtsNow and the Twinsburg Public Library, with the generous donations in memory of Joan Domeck, launched its Joan Domeck Community Connections passes program, where guests have the opportunity to reserve passes to Summit County cultural institutions for enjoyment and learning.
In collaboration with the Summit Historical Society, Akron Art Museum, Stan Hywet, Hale Farms and Village, Akron Zoo, and the Akron Children’s Museum this pilot program allows library members to reserve passes and exploration bags of resources like books, Metro maps, and pamphlets to visit Summit County attractions for enjoyment and learning purposes.
“I am so grateful to the leadership of the Twinsburg Library and our cultural organizations for moving this opportunity forward,” says Nicole Mullet, Executive Director of ArtsNow, a local nonprofit that works to strengthen the arts and culture sector in Summit County. “In Summit County, we believe arts and culture are for everyone, and we’re thrilled with the positive response from Twinsburg residents, excited to explore our cultural assets through this program.”
Since June, 134 passes have been used by Library members. Crystal Feyerchak, Special Projects Librarian, shared she’d seen an overwhelmingly positive response from the Twinsburg community. “We’ve seen similar programs successfully implemented nationally and are so lucky to live in a community that sees the value in partnering with our library,” says Feyerchak. “Twinsburg families are benefiting from this partnership.”
Due to the demand of the passes, library members may reserve one pass per month per organization and may only keep passes for up to four days.
Passes are available to reserve anytime online at twinsburglibrary.org/passes. Available passes should be picked up and returned in person during your reservation period at the Adult Reference Desk.
