Inside Government with Connecticut Historical Society

July 20, 2023 @ 4:00 pm


Essex Library ends its 2-part Voices of History series with Inside Government; a history program, presented by the Connecticut Historical Society and Museum, on Thursday, July 20, at 4 PM, held at the Essex Library.

Go inside Connecticut’s state government and discover what makes an active citizen! Through role-playing, historical documents, and props, kids will learn about the three branches of state government, elect a governor, and debate a bill. Kids will learn how citizens can make a difference and make a poster for a cause they believe in.

This program is free and recommended for children ages 9-12. Registration required. For more information about the program, please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560 or see https://www.youressexlibrary.org/ The Essex Library is located at 33 West Avenue in Essex.

This program is made possible in part by a $2,000 Summer Enrichment Grant, issued by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Connecticut State Library.
