Summer Storytime: Hornbooks and Inkwells

Thursday, Aug. 1, 10–10:30 a.m.

Meet a staff member at the information desk and follow them to the Robson House in The Story of North Carolina. There you can look around and hear this story, by Verla Kay (illustrated by S. D. Schindler), about learning to read and write in an 18th-century one-room schoolhouse. While you’re here, remember to visit the Museum Shop and get your own hornbook and inkwell—and even a tricorn hat!

Ages 3 and up (with adult)
