Woman_Churning_Butter_MET_DP827612As part of our bicentennial celebration, kids can travel back to 1819 during a special program at 6 p.m. on Monday, April 29, at our Headlands Branch.

Our friends from the Lake County History Center will teach kids about churning butter, threshing wheat and other chores that children would have had 200 years ago.

The program is fun, free and open to all kids from six to 12 years old. We only ask that you register beforehand. You can sign up online or call our Headlands Branch at (440) 257-2000.

By the way, we’re celebrating our 200th anniversary all year long with, donation drives, programs that celebrate local history, and (of course) reading! Get all the details here.
