During the month of September, The Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast proudly participated in Library Card Month, organized by the Martin County Library System. Through this program, 165 local families used their library cards to play for free!
The Children’s Museum, along with The Elliot Museum and The Florida Oceanographic Society partnered with Martin County Libraries to provide free admission into our local attractions, as well as encourage families to sign up for library cards. One library card granted admission for a family of four, and this special was available every Friday throughout the entire month of September. The Children’s Museum saw incredible success, with 165 families, approximately 660 people, taking advantage of the incredible opportunity organized by our local libraries to experience the power and fun of creative hands-on play! Guests flooded in not just from the local community, but from across Florida as well. Aubrey Hunter, 10, and Emma Hunter, 7, pictured above, came to the Treasure Coast from their home in Orlando to stay with their grandmother in anticipation of Hurricane Ian striking the west coast of Florida, and were able to visit The Children’s Museum with their grandmother’s library pass.
The Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast is always looking for opportunities to serve the community. Faith Monti, Community Relations Coordinator with The Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast, “It’s always incredible when The Children’s Museum is able to participate in programs that serve the community; our mission is to provide learning through the power of play, so we are always looking for ways to offer those experiences to everyone. We as a non-profit rely on the support of our community so it’s a great thing when we can give back to that same community.”
The Children’s Museum is always evolving and searching for ways to give back. If you would like to support or get involved, please contact Faith Monti, Community Relations Coordinator at 772-225-7575 ext. 202. We look forward to seeing you playing and learning at the Children’s Museum.
