Promont House Museum to feature children’s books

Summer visitors to the Promont House Museum, in Milford, will get a rare opportunity to view a special display of vintage children’s books. The “Read Me A Story” display features popular children’s books from the 1920s to the 1950s.

“Children’s books were an important part of a child’s early years in the 30’s, 40’s and 50s,” said Promont registrar Nancy Storch. “Children did not have as much to entertain them as the kids do today and the pop-up books were very popular. We want people to come and bring their children and grandchildren to enjoy these books.”

Promont House Museum has been lent this colorful collection of children’s books and they are on display in the cases and the hallways of Promont.
