Traveling Trunks

TRAVELING TRUNKS NOT CURRENTLY LENDING DUE TO COVID 19

[Para Español, presione aquí.]

Traveling Trunks is a new resource-lending program from the Smithsonian Libraries and Archives. These multimedia library kits are packed full of resources from across the Smithsonian Institution that deliver immersive experiences. Through touch, tech, sound, and sight, Traveling Trunks creates a screen-free sensorial rich environment. Through the current four themes students can listen to authentic songs and stories by the Latinx community; solve intricate mystery games based on US presidential history or ancient texts on zoology and herbology; and hear under-told stories of American women’s history. The program is a free resource for young learners and their educators, and Traveling Trunks can be sent to libraries, schools, community centers, and other learning sites for a month-long lending period, with the option to renew, anywhere in the United States. All costs, including shipping costs are covered; we just ask that users have access to a FedEx office.  ​​Interested in borrowing a Traveling Trunks? Request one Here.
