  • Get Involved with Outside the Box!
    Developed and funded by Redbox, and managed by OCLC in partnership with Project for Public Spaces, Outside the Box is an innovative program that brings people together for free, fun entertainment events in their local community. When people connect, communities benefit—and as trusted community anchors, public libraries are central to Outside the Box efforts.

    This year, up to 20 U.S. communities will participate in Outside the Box, with the local library driving community brainstorming and planning sessions and hosting events. The program has opened its application process to all interested US public libraries. The application process will be open through May 15th.
