National Museum of Industrial History Kicks Off New Year with Young Reader's Program

The National Museum of Industrial History is excited to start the New Year by announcing its brand new Young Reader's Program.  This engaging series features award-winning children's literature to educate and inspire younger generations with stories of industrial history.  Each date will include a fun and interactive show and tell component that will be fun for the whole family. "I'm really excited not only to share the stories of inventors and inventions but the artifacts that bring those stories to life," said Kitsa Behringer, the museum's Educational Coordinator.  

The program kicks off this Saturday, January 7th with a special collaboration with the LV Cops 'n' Kids program and a reading of Monica Kulling's "All Aboard!: Elijah McCoy's Steam Engine."  Following the book reading children and their families are invited to stick around for a special Show & Tell with artifacts from the Lehigh Valley Railroad.

Support for this program was generously provided by QNB Bank.
