Share your Peabody story to support the museum in medal quest

The Yale Peabody Museum — one of 33 finalists for the prestigious National Medal of the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences (IMLS) — will be featured on the IMLS Facebook page on Wednesday, April 3.

The IMLS National Medal is the nation’s highest honor conferred on museums and libraries for service to the community. The medal celebrates institutions that make a difference for individuals, families, and communities.

The voice of the community the museum serves is an important factor in the selection of winners.

Therefore, the Peabody Museum invites visitors to share their personal stories on April 3 of how their visits to the Yale museum have enriched their lives, created a memorable experience, or in some way had an impact on them. 

To share your story, visit www.facebook.com/USIMLS. National Medal winners will be announced this spring.
