The Library as Incubator Project highlights the ways that libraries and artists can work together, and works to strengthen these partnerships. Our aim is to promote and facilitate creative collaboration between libraries and artists of all types. We’re currently working to create an artist's handbook for using the library, in order to help artists of all types make the best use of what libraries have to offer. This handbook will likely include information about:
○ Developing skills through library collections, workshops, and spaces
○ Using the library for inspiration and research for your work
○ Partnering with libraries to showcase and share artwork
○ Anything else that YOU think might be useful!

We’d love to hear from you about what would make this handbook the most useful for you. Thank you for taking the time to answer the following questions!
