Family Zone Saturday, 5:00 pm to 5:45 pm

Come see what families made and played with, back in the days before television and cell phones.

A "crankie" is a box with a window cut into it, and a spindle on each side, and hand-cranks to pull a roll of art-covered paper from one spindle to the other.  When the cranks are turned, the crankie shows a scrolling series of pictures that illustrate a story.  Come see it in action!
