PARTNERSHIP WITH THE NEW HAVEN FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY

Long Wharf Theatre is working with New Haven Free Public Library to broaden access to both organizations through the following programs


Public Programming: Story-slams, artist conversations, workshops, and more! Join us at all five library branches throughout the season for theatre-based programming. All are welcome. Check for upcoming programs by signing up for our email list or checking out our Facebook page!

Library Pass: Use your New Haven Free Public Library card to check out a pass (2 tix) to see a show at LWT for free. 

Micro-branch: A curated mini-library in the LWT lobbies during each show.  Anybody with a Connecticut library card can check out a book and return it to their local branch.

Community Ambassador Program: A group of 30 ambassadors to LWT, nominated by our partners. These are avid community leaders and theatre-goers who broaden the audience for LWT programming and deepen the conversations we have around each show.
