Our celebration of play continued on Tuesday, April 22, at 4 pm in Rausch Auditorium, with staff from the Children's Museum of Tacoma. Their presentation, "Celebrating the Power of Play in the Lifelong Journey of Learning," highlighted the numerous ways in which the museum is positively serving our community.

In recognition of that service, the Institute of Museum and Library Services has named the Children’s Museum of Tacoma as a finalist for the 2014 National Medal for Museum and Library Service! Medal finalists are selected from nationwide nominations of institutions that demonstrate innovative approaches to public service, exceeding the expected levels of community outreach.
