Community Outreach

Arizona Public Media is a trusted community resource that enriches the lives of Arizonans through quality programs that inform and inspire.

Through partnerships with the University of Arizona and out in the community, AZPM is a catalyst for lifelong learning and initiatives for AZPM members, families, caregivers, educators and of course children. Through the Now Showing at Your Library program with the Pima County Library, the Storytime events at the UA Student Union Memorial Center, the PBS Kids character appearances at the Children’s Museum Tucson, or the Tucson Festival of Books, AZPM engages in meaningful partnerships and events that bring people and ideas together.
