Mill Museum kicks off Reading Series for Kids Windham Textile & History Museum

In conjunction with “Windham Reads” month, The Mill Museum, Windham Textile & History Museum,  kicks off a three month Reading Series at Kid’s Club where we take our monthly theme from a book.  This month on Saturday April 13, we will read Charlie Needs a New Cloak by Tomie DePaola  and the activities will include dying and weaving. On May 11 the featured book will be The Ink Garden of Brother Theophane by  C. M. Miller and Andrea Wisnewski and the Kid’s will make ink, books and write with quill pens. Students who bring a 100% cotton shirt can tie dye their shirt.   On June 8 the story of  A River Ran Wild by Lynne Cherry will inspire a session of visiting and learning all about the Willimantic River.

All events are the 2nd Saturday at 2- 3:30 p.m. Events include lesson, story, craft, and snack. Reservations are helpful when planning craft and snack. The programs are geared toward students ages 5 through 12. The programs are held in the Kenton Hall program space and the  entrance is on Union Street.
