History Comes Alive at the 5th Annual Living History Museum!
Kids and adults alike will love learning about history as we celebrate Black History Month at this amazing event. At the Museum, children in grades K – 8 portray American American Heroes and tell about their ideas, courage and talent and creativity that helped shape America.
As you browse through the Museum, you may meet “Rosa Parks” and find out how she felt taking such a significant part in the Civil Rights movement. Or “Langston Hughes” might tell you of his early life and how he survived an earthquake in Mexico!
This year’s Living History Museum will take place at the Peninsula Center Library in the Community Room from 6 – 7:30pm.
Light refreshments will be served.
The Palos Verdes Library District will be holding its annual Peek Into the Past Tea Party program on Saturday, December 14, 2013 and Sunday, December 15, 2013.
Please join us for a craft and refreshments as we learn about the worlds of American girls of days past. A collection of American Girl dolls will be on display. If you like, bring a favorite doll or stuffed animal to this special event recommended for ages 4 and up!
The event will be held at the following times:
Saturday, December 14, 2013 at 10:00am, 12:00pm, and 2:00pm
