Traveling Trunks coming to Columbia

One Book Every Young Child Campaign will bring What A Treasure “Traveling Trunks” to public libraries in Lancaster County!

This spring public libraries around the county will host programs featuring “Traveling Trunks” with activities that relate to this year’s One Book Every Young Child selection, What A Treasure! by Jane and Will Hillenbrand.
On March 27 and during the month of April and May, public libraries around the county are hosting special What A Treasure! storytime & family night programs that will incorporate reading the selected book along with themed-related activities from a “What A Treasure Traveling Trunk." The Traveling Trunks were created by museum partners, The Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia and the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. The Traveling Trunks provide library staff with story time extensions such as book-related puppets, games and toys to bring the museum experience to children who otherwise could not visit one. Storytime activities are aligned with the Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards: Language and Literacy; Approach to Learning; Social Studies; Science; and Creative Arts.
The event will come to the Columbia Public Library at 3 p.m., Friday, April 16, with a special storytime led by Senator Mike Brubaker.
