Shout Outs!
(It really does takes a village to raise a Museum)

Staples.png

Staples in West Lebanon has been a partner with the Museum for a while and now our relationship is official! They picked us as their 'Community Partner' for the year! What does this mean? It means they will be helping us with print media (so important) from business cards to signs to help us reduce our costs in advertising! Super duper shout out to Shari who takes really good care of us! Stop in and say HI! Tell them the Museum sent you! 

Author Jodi Picoult from Hanover, NH sent us a care package of some of her banned books!

These go towards our goal of 500 

Dudley & Jodi

books to give away for free during WRJ PRIDE Week! She ROCKS (and if you haven't read her books they do too! We HIGHLY recommend them - This Valley is so full of amazing talent!

Paolo, volunteer extraordinaire, asked Main Street Kitchens for a donation of a prize for the Chili Cook-Off coming up on 4/27 and they obliged with a gift card! (He was tickled to get a yes on his first ask!) Thanks You So Much! 

They Like Us...They Really Like Us!

"[The Main Street Museum] was truly the perfect setting. It’s really proving to be THE place for us!" Paige H., Frequent renter of the venue

"Attention, Metropolitan Museum of Art is doing it wrong."  airshipdaily.com 

"I think [The MSM] plays a really important role in our cultural ecosystem...” Margaret Lawrence, director at Dartmouth College’s Hopkins Center for the Arts, 2013
