Program Description

Specific Event Details

Welcome to History Makers, where we believe that learning about the past helps you create a better future! Each month, we focus on a new History Maker from the past, learning about their achievements through a picture-book biography read-aloud. We have a brief discussion about what we can take away from their story and then do a craft or activity based around that person’s life! At the end of each program, each child receives a History Makers take-home packet with facts & activities about the person’s life!

This month we will be learning about Lena Bryant, reading the book A Perfect Fit: How Lena "Lane" Bryant Changed the Shape of Fashion by Mara Rockliff and doing a very fashion-forward craft. 

This program is aimed at children ages 5 to 8, though family members are welcome to sit in or remain on the youth floor for the duration of the program. We ask that you register to make sure we have enough craft supplies for all of our makers!
