THE ULTIMATE ELEVEN WEEK INTERACTIVE CREATIVITY EXHIBITION AT THE SCHAUMBURG TOWNSHIP DISTRICT LIBRARY IS NOW IN THE BOOKS!
WE REACHED OVER 166,000 CHILDREN AND ADULTS…
BROKE THE RECORD WITH OVER 4,150 PARTICIPANTS IN THE SUMMER READING CHALLENGE…
& SOLD OUT ALL OF OUR PROGRAMS WITH MORE THAN 580 PEOPLE ATTENDING!
Our 11 week long installation in the library will included the Chuck Jones archives, artifacts, featured works, Chuck’s animation desk, and museum collection, recently on display at The Smithsonian Museum in DC.
This summer program involved a fully interactive experience that exclusively featured The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity art programs, like our Animation Academy and more.
These programs were developed to bring the kids and their families back to the library all summer, to interact with our exhibits, read Chuck Jones selected book list, watch Academy Award winning animation classics, and even help Wile E Coyote build a better Road Runner trap, using interactive simple machines tools and resources in our Acme S.T.E.A.M. Lab.
