Join Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum Educators, Historians, and Librarians as we host an exciting “That Belongs in a Museum” show-and-tell event. Although we’ve borrowed this idea from an adult event, we think kids (through age 18) will love to share the story of a family treasure with their peers and learn more about what’s meaningful to other kids and their families.

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum invites youth to join us this summer in a virtual (via Zoom) reading club as we discuss books about the world we share. Our hope is to provide relevant books that allow youth to engage with our staff and their peers around topics that are important to them. Our promise is a safe space where youth can think, discuss their ideas, challenge assumptions, and (hopefully) grow a little based on what we read. We also promise to remember it’s summer and keep it fun!

Our Advanced book selection for July is Nic Stone’s, Dear Martin.
