Children in a classroom during the Caribbean Connections summer enrichment program

Date: August 9, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Cost: Free

Caribbean Connections, a summer enrichment program of The House of the Seven Gables Settlement Association will end the summer with a celebration and inauguration of two Little Free Libraries.

During the five weeks of program, 20 children from multilingual homes learned about the connection of Caribbean history to Salem’s Colonial history while enriching their English vocabulary. We will end the program with a celebration of the 350 years of The House of the Seven Gables and its rich mission of historic preservation, literature and Settlement.

Join us to celebrate the culmination of five weeks of learning and cultural enrichment as the children inaugurate a Little Free Library at The House of the Seven Gables and perform a drum ensemble with Mamadou Diop. They will also display their creation of the traditional Dominican Faceless Dolls, a symbolic representation of the diversity across the Caribbean encompassing its native Taino, colonial and slave history.

This event is free and open to the public. Please click here to RSVP, email erincon@7gables.org, or call 978-744-0991 ext. 105.

A second Little Free Library will be installed at Mary Jane Lee Park on Palmer Street in Salem.
