Whitehall Library Launches Pittsburgh-Themed Experience Kits

The Whitehall Public Library, in partnership with the Senator John Heinz History Center and its affiliates program, will host a special event titled, “Be a Tourist in Your Own City: A Pittsburgh Party,” on Saturday, June 10 at 1 p.m.

This family event will mark the launch of the library’s customized “Tourist in Your Own City” experience kits, which contain educational and recreational resources along with admission passes to destinations in and around Pittsburgh, thanks to the generosity of the History Center Affiliates Program.

The “premiere party” on June 10 will celebrate all things Pittsburgh, featuring Pittsburgh-themed games, trivia, puzzles and raffles. The festivities will also involve enjoying iconic Pittsburgh treats, namely Isaly’s ice cream, Schneider’s Diary lemonade and Eat ’n’ Park smiley cookies.

The program will conclude with a raffle for the chance to be the first to use the experience kits, which can be checked out using a Whitehall Public Library card – just like a regular book.

The experience kits include free admission passes and information for five different locations in Pittsburgh and the greater surrounding area: Heinz History Center, McKeesport Regional History and Heritage Center, Cockayne Farmstead in West Virginia, Francis J. Lemoyne House in Washington County, and Vicary Mansion overlooking the Ohio River in Beaver County. There are even games and music for the car trip, all in one handy tote bag.

“This program will definitely make people aware of all of the great history that Western Pennsylvania and the tri-state region have to offer. Visiting any of these sites will make you proud to call our region home,” said Robert Stakeley, History Center Affiliates Program Coordinator.

“I am thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity to our community,” said Sarah Scott, reference librarian at Whitehall Public Library and mastermind behind the experience kits. “At our library we really try to provide unique and exciting experiences for our patrons. I am so grateful to the History Center for turning this idea into a reality.”

In addition to the five “Tourist in Your Own City” experience kits, Whitehall Public Library has cultivated 14 other themed kits for circulation. So check out a kit, hop in the car and head out for the day – all you need is your library card!
