Reading Programs at the Museum of Us

Reflect on your place in the world through our ongoing reading programs. Please contact with any questions.

Book & A Blanket

One of our exhibit books catch your eye? Take it and enjoy a read outside! Guests are invited to check-out exhibit books at the front desk. Book check-out includes a blanket so you can curl up in a comfortable place outside. The Book and a Blanket program is free, but all borrowed materials must be returned to the Museum by 4:30 p.m.

To participate, simply take a book from the exhibit to the front desk and tell them you'd like to check out a Book & a Blanket.
