We’re writing with an invitation to the Harvard community: The Old Library Pilot Project wants you!

On Sept. 20, the doors of the Old Library will officially open under the auspices of a new, six-month pilot program. What’s the goal? To test whether there is the desire for, and the resources to create, a self-sustaining center for community and arts programming headquartered in the Old Library. And, like all good experimenters, we need to collect lots and lots of sound data….that’s where you come in! Have ideas for speakers or programs? Send them to us! Want to give a presentation, teach a class, get your group or club together, or show off your stuff? Tell us about it! Interested in being a pilot project volunteer? Let us know!

Just visit the Harvard town website at www.harvard.ma.us and look for the Pilot Project’s link on the home page. There you will find information on what rooms and uses are available during the pilot project; how to request space/propose a program or use; how to submit ideas for program offerings/use that you’d like to see; how to volunteer to be part of the pilot project…from greeters to clean-up crews and pre-launch preppers, to coordinators, schedulers, tech support and more!

Want to see the Old Library brought back to life again? Then let us hear from you! The quality of the data we report out at the end of the Pilot Project is only as good as the content that gets put in….so help us make this experiment a success!

P.S. And stay tuned — next week we’ll be back with a sneak peak of what’s on-deck for the pre-launch Open House weekend Saturday, Sept. 18, and Sunday, Sept. 19, and for the first few weeks of the Pilot Project. Spaces are filling-up on the calendar, so act now! The Old Library: back in action and back to life! pilotprojectinfo@gmail.com.
