Boston Children’s Museum Received National Medal for Museum and Library Service in White House Ceremony
Date:5/10/2013

BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) May 10, 2013

In a White House ceremony in the East Room, First Lady Michelle Obama joined Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Director Susan Hildreth to present the 2013 National Medal for Museum and Library Service to Boston Children’s Museum. The nation’s highest honor conferred on museums and libraries for service to the community, the National Medal celebrates institutions that make a difference for individuals, families, and communities. Carole Charnow, President & CEO of Boston Children’s Museum, and community member Tayquan Pomare-Taylor accepted the National Medal.

Two years ago, Boston Children’s Museum selected then-14-year-old Tayquan as a BNY Mellon CityACCESS Youth Leader (formerly BNY Mellon CityACCESS Teen Ambassador). The program encouraged him to connect and engage with children and adults alike at the Museum and in Boston neighborhoods. This responsibility positively impacted his sense of self, and both individual and institution have greatly benefitted. Tayquan raised his GPA from 0.7 to 2.5 over the past several months because he better understands that hard work yields rewards. Now 16, Tayquan reflects, "It felt like the Museum was made for me. And the way kids react to me at the Museum – asking for me by name, learning from me – shows me that I have something to give."

“Museums and libraries serve as centers for lifelong learning and as cornerstones for our communities. Boston Children’s Museum has been a place for children and families to explore, to learn, to play, and to dream for 100 years, and we are very proud to name Boston Children’s Museum one of this year’s National Medal for Museum and Library Service winners,” said Susan Hildreth, director, Institute of Museum and Library Services.

This year’s 10 honorees exemplify the nation’s great diversity of libraries and museums and include a science center, children’s museum, music muse
