Storytime [July 6, 2023]

Gather ’round on Thursday, July 6, 2023 at 10am for Storytime! Storytime at LancasterHistory takes place among historic buildings, giving children an immersive history experience. A passionate museum educator or volunteer will read aloud from a book centered on a historical theme, and then lead a craft or activity inspired by the theme. On July 6, join us for a special Storytime as we welcome author Corey Fogelman and his daughter–and illustrator!–Piper Fogelman to present and read their book, Market Day: A Lancaster County Poem. We’ll then complete a craft or activity based on the day’s theme (craft/activity to be determined).
