Idea Exchange | January 2, 2018

We are delighted to announce that starting January 2, 2018 the Cambridge Art Gallery membership will be uniting with the Library membership. This new joint Idea Exchange membership will allow us to offer increased benefits for our community and patrons – all with one card, for free. Library members will benefit from free admissions at select Ontario galleries and the Gallery members will be invited to become Idea Exchange members

Here are a few of the perks of membership:

  • Borrowing - Books, eBooks, movies, music, and unusual items like instruments, gardening tools and video games.
  • Services – 3D Printing, WiFi, tech training, reciprocal library borrowing and gallery admission.
  • Life + Learning – online courses, databases and topic guides.
  • Programs + Events – Family STEAM storytimes, adult guitar lessons and Cambridge Third Age Learning lectures - there is something for every age.
  • Art Exhibitions - Contemporary art, architecture and design on view at Cambridge Art Galleries.

Adopting a joint membership directly supports our core values, providing gallery and library services to every resident in Cambridge. We are looking to build a critical connectedness in our community, not barriers to access. People of all ages, and backgrounds are invited to experience our spaces, resources and services. We want to share our new vision by creating an environment of curiosity and discovery through the exploration of the arts and new technologies.

So let’s start the conversation, and be open to the insights and opinions of others, as we invite curiosity to thrive in our spaces. As we evolve and change to meet the needs of our community, we recognize that predicting is less important than reacting and that we all want to be better, faster learners.

As make our New Year’s resolutions, let’s choose to practice the habits of curious people and value the questions more than the answers – Idea Exchange is here to foster a growth mindset, so let’s start this journey together.

Ready to become a member? A few simple steps will get you on your journey of discovery.
