Sunday Story Time: Ron’s Big Mission
Sunday, February 6 at 11:30 am

Free with Museum admission; ages 3-6

Join us every Sunday in person for story time and crafts! Each class includes a special hello song, silly dances and games, a story book reading, and a craft to do after the story. Welcome to Black History Month! All month long we will be learning about and celebrating the accomplishments of Black people throughout history!

Our first book is Ron’s Big Mission, written by Rose Blue and Corinne J. Naden, and illustrated by Don Tate. Ron McNair was on a mission. In 1959 South Carolina, black children were not allowed to have their own library cards, but Ron was determined to change that and to check out books of his own. Ron’s favorite books were about space and airplanes, and when he grew up, he became an astronaut! After the story, make your own library card!

Please note that this is not a drop-off program—child participants must be accompanied by an adult. Capacity limits, vaccination proof (for those 5 and up) plus matching ID (for those ages 12 and up), and mask requirements apply. Please find all our safety information here.
