The High Point Public Library has joined forces with the Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts in Greensboro once again this year to offer family four-packs of tickets to certain performances as part of the library’s “Borrow an Experience” program.

The goal of the library’s program is to make the arts – in this case, the performing arts at the Tanger Center – more accessible to those in the community who otherwise might not be able to experience the events due to cost.

The library partners with other venues as part of the program as well to offer other experiences.

 While the Tanger Center has been a big hit in Greensboro, there are some events – such as a previous Sting concert to name just one – where the ticket prices were truly eye opening.  Even acts that don’t feature international superstars such as Sting can be costly, which is where the library jumps in to help.

Under the program, library cardholders who are 18 years and older and “in good standing” (no overdue books perhaps?) are eligible to check out passes. The passes must be reserved in advance through the library’s currently active list, which can be found at

The High Point library has just announced the Tanger Center performances and dates that will be included as part of the program during the new theater season:

• Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Live in Concert on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 7:30 p.m.

• Paw Patrol Live!  on Saturday, Oct. 21 and Sunday, Oct. 22.

• And, last but not least, Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban in Concert with the Greensboro Symphony on Saturday, June 8, 2024, at 7 p.m.

The “Borrow an Experience” passes can be checked out on Mondays in the Children’s Department on the first floor of the library during library hours.
