Reading On The Rails
You’re right on track for reading and railroading as special guests share stories about trains, railroads and other amazing people, places and things during the family-friendly Reading On The Rails event at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania on Saturday, March 11.
Kids will receive their very own “suitcase” and use it to travel from story to story throughout the day. They can collect a sticker after each story and create their own suitcase design with stickers, crayons, glitter and other trimmings. A small gift to put inside their suitcase will be offered, while supplies last.
At press time, special guest readers were scheduled to include:
- Kristin Fernitz, director of the Strasburg-Heisler Library
- Hillary Daecher, author of the children’s book “Soar”
- Amy Banks, arts and communications manager at the Ware Center/Millersville University
- Greg Liscio, volunteer at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania
- Patrick Morrison, director of the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania
Also on hand during the day will be various teams from KPETS, Keystone Pet Enhanced Therapy Services.
Reading On The Rails story times are 10:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:15 p.m., 1:45 p.m., 2:15 p.m. and 2:45 p.m. and will be held among the historic trains in the Museum’s climate controlled Rolling Stock Hall.
