Reading is not only important to a child’s educational, career and social development, it also pays great dividends.
Youngsters, who participate in the Lackawanna County Library System’s Summer Reading Clubs, receive a passport that offers them admittance to a variety of County cultural events.
One activity that the passport is good for is the Thursday, August 1, ARTS Engage Day at the Electric City Trolley Museum on 300 Cliff Street, Scranton, on the property of the Steamtown National Historic Site, from 10 AM – 1 PM.
Children with a passport will gain free admission to the program, have access to a variety of fun arts activities and be able to enjoy a discounted trolley ride.
Initiated in 2006, the passport program is a collaboration between the Library System and the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority. It entitles the holder to one free admission at the Electric City Trolley Museum, Lackawanna Coal Mine Tours, Steamtown National Historic Site, the Everhart and Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museums, and the Scranton Cultural Center.
Each Summer since its inception, the passport program has provided children with more than 10,000 free admissions to the County’s major attractions.
