Problem Library is supporting a renaissance toward beauty, goodness, and truth in education, art, and cultural infrastructure.

We believe the development of the entire person — our character, integrity, and sense of responsibility — provides the foundation to lead purposeful and meaningful lives. This belief is manifested in programs, events, and projects we build from the ground up.

Problem Children honors ambitious students by challenging them to explore their artistic talents and gain creative courage on their own terms.

[working] provides space and support for artists to develop their creative practices without compromise as we reimagine our cities as places of ingenuity.

Too Much Information is a multi-day symposium for creative minds of all ages to gain insight and inspiration. Twice a year, TMI brings together the Problem Children alumni network and broader Problem Library community, showcasing the spirit of the organization.


While these programs are currently our primary focus, we are always looking for ways our experience can be applied to new areas and disciplines.

This website was built to showcase the work we do, the values that inform our approach, and capture the stories that make up our organizational history.

Evocative curves and interconnectedness are at the heart of the work of sculptor Lynette Nicole Betancur. The delicacy of her work reminds us that connection and mutual support come in many shapes and methods. Photograph by Jeff Masamori.
