International Museum Day 2019
The last of our Special Days for a while, today is International Museum Day! The theme for 2019 is “Museums as Cultural Hubs: The future of tradition”. While I like the idea of museums serving as cultural hubs of communities, I would like to point out that public libraries can serve this roll as well, perhaps even better than museums because they do not charge admission. Regardless, I appreciate the efforts of ICOM, and encourage all of you to take a moment today to consider the role of museums in your life and your community.
