NU State Museum gives free passes to Lincoln Literacy | Nebraska today
The University of Nebraska State Museum – Morrill Hall recently partnered with Lincoln Literacy to provide 168 free museum passes as part of a summer membership drive.
For every membership purchased or renewed, Morrill Hall donated two free passes to Lincoln Literacy. Museum members and visitors also had the option of purchasing additional passes as a donation.
“Lincoln Literacy does a great job of providing education and learning opportunities for members of our Lincoln community,” said Susan Weller, Director of A State Museum. “We were thrilled to have them as a summer community access partner and to provide our museum as a resource for their families’ ongoing learning.”
Lincoln Literacy’s mission is to build community by teaching the English language and a variety of literacy skills to people of all cultures.
“Lincoln Literacy families are curious to learn more about our natural world and the heritage of diverse cultures,” said Donna Stadig, Senior Associate Director of the organization. “The visit to Morrill Hall will be a wonderful opportunity for them to deepen their knowledge of the natural sciences. We appreciate the support of the University of Nebraska State Museum in helping us help others thrive.
Lincoln Literacy is the seventh local organization to receive passes as part of the A State Museum Membership Program. To date, over 1,000 passes have been shared through the Community Access Program. The museum plans to support other Lincoln-based community organizations with future membership drives.
