Futures in History Camp

Calling all future historians! Registration for the 2017 season of Futures in History Camp (formerly known as History Careers Day Camp) at the McLean County Museum of History is quickly approaching. Registration for two separate sessions of camp—one in June and one in July—will open Tuesday, April 11. Registration for the two sessions is open to the first 20 students to apply for each week of camp. Preference will be given to those students who have never attended camp before. The dates for the two sessions are as follows: June 12-16 and July 24-28. Camp registration is available to all area kids entering fourth through sixth grade. Online registration will be available through the Museum’s website at http://mchistory.org/learn/programs/daycamp.php. Printable registration forms will also be available through the Museum’s website, as well as through the Unit 5 and District 87 online backpacks. Registration will close Friday, May 19.

This summer, campers will have the chance to explore five potential future careers related to the field of history: law, archaeology, architecture, museum studies, and environmental science. Over the course of the five-day camp, students will visit the David Davis Mansion and Sugar Grove Nature Center, and will become well acquainted with the Museum and Downtown Bloomington’s own Museum Square. For more information, please contact the Education Department by email at education@mchistory.org or by phone at 309-827-0428. We look forward to hearing from all of you burgeoning history buffs in April!

Human Library

Take a break from the downtown Farmers’ Market and join the Human Library experience at the McLean County Museum of History. Hear from a variety of community members who will share their personal stories of challenges they experienced, choices they made, and changes they initiated.

Founded in Denmark 17 years ago, the Human Library initiative is designed to promote dialogue, reduce prejudices, and encourage understanding by bringing people together for intentional, face-to-face conversations.

Conversations kick off at 10:00 a.m. and will take place every half hour (10:00, 10:30, 11:00, and 11:30). No pre-registration is required. Simply check in at the “circulation desk” to select your sessions and to complete your library card. Please arrive 15 minutes before each session time to ensure seating. Choose one or all sessions!

This free program is presented in partnership with the University College at ISU and being held in conjunction with the exhibit, Challenges, Choices & Change: Making a Home. Contact the Education Department at education@mchistory.org or 309-827-0428 with questions or accessibility needs. We hope you’ll join us for this unique community program!

- Remember that Books are courageous human volunteers.
- Return Books to us in the same condition they were at the time of check-out.
- Be open. Resist making assumptions.
