The Titanic, the Library, and You

I have been intrigued by the Titanic since I was a kid. Although I am not one of those that has learned all sorts of facts and trivia about it, I do enjoy learning new information about it, and I have been known to stop and watch a special on it when channeling surfing. So, when I heard that the Grand Rapids Public Museum was bringing the Titanic exhibit to town, I was super excited! I cannot wait to go spend a day at the Museum to see this.

Did you know that you can get free admittance into the museum through the library? Through our Check it Out program, all you have to do is bring in your Grand Rapids Public Library card, and if the pass is available, check it out on your card. It is good for up to six people and can be used one time within six days. The pass does NOT cover the Titanic Exhibit fee, but it sure will help defer the cost of the adventure!

Finally, the library will be hosting a Titanic program in March. In partnership with the museum, you can learn to tie knots, learn to be a deck hand, experience icebergs and lifeboats and so much more. Be sure to check this out, too!

    FYI… The check it out passes from the library do not include the Titanic exhibit. The pass can not be applied towards the admission fee either.
