Thomas Dunn Learning Center is invested in offering engaging experiences to the region. We host a number of nonprofit and community organizations that hold free, public, learning opportunities. If you or your organization are passionate/expert in a topic or hobby and interested in offering a program or teaching a class, please click on and complete the Program Proposal Form. You will be contacted by a staff member to discuss your ideas and how your program may fit the mission of TDLC.
To reserve a space, please read our Facilities Use Guidelines, call us with any questions, and complete the Facility Use Form. We will process your request within two business days and let you know whether or not we will be able to accommodate you. If your event needs to begin or end outside of our normal hours or on weekends, we may be able to accommodate you, but it is not guaranteed.
We adopted a Sustainability Initiative in 2014 for both the inside and outside of our facilities and continue to build upon it every year. We encourage our visitors to be mindful of our basic sustainability guidelines:
Recycle everything possible - when in doubt, ask.
Avoid using non-recyclable styrofoam eating/drink items.
Use our permanent plates, cups, and silverware if using our kitchen.
Avoid plastic water bottles (our water quality is tested and exceeds the quality of most bottled water).
Inform your caterer/staff to use compostable and/or recyclable silverware, cups, and plates, etc.
Use green cleaning supplies when necessary. We provide them for you.
Avoid helium balloons.
Volunteer to help care for our Missouri native plants surrounding our building.
Join in one of our repurposing/upcycling workshops.
