The Hingham Public Library launches its Summer Reading Program with a reading of “Twenty-One Elephants and Still Standing” by April Jones Prince. The book tells a little known story about the Brooklyn Bridge. After the bridge was built people feared its safety. P.T. Barnum, legendary showman, along with his twenty-one elephants (each weighing 7 tons!) demonstrated otherwise. Reading will be followed by a STEM craft. This is a drop-in event.
