Event Details

When the Mercantile Library opened its doors in 1835, the 19th century institution stood in the middle of the fast-growing nation’s busiest startup community.  Young, energetic, and confident, the Library’s organizers were putting themselves on track to become the entrepreneurial engines of the growing city’s future prosperity, a goal that was handsomely met in many ways. 

Today the Mercantile sets its sights on a third century of invention and reinvention, and that's where you come in.  We want to convene the brightest minds in the city to help us come up with the best way to present the Library to a new generation of readers, writers, and thinkers.  We're offering cash awards - at least $10,000 in total -  for the best ideas, as selected by our panel of experts, and winners may have the opportunity to do ongoing work for the Library.

Work will take place all day on Saturday, April 27th, and then again on Sunday morning, with presentations after lunch.

If you already have a team on which you'd like to work, please let us know your team's name by hitting the "contact us" button on the confirmation page once you've registered, or email cmessick@mercantilelibrary.com.

Organizer

The Mercantile Library

The Mercantile Library is a membership library. It is a non-profit institution supported by members' annual subscriptions, gifts, and income from an endowment fund. The Library receives no tax support. The name refers not to the collection but to the Library's founders who were young merchants and clerks. Organized in 1835, it is the city's senior library and one of the oldest cultural institutions in the midwest.
