Fairfield Museum is hosting live events and bringing its award-winning exhibits and content online to bring people of all ages together, and provide the Museum’s great offerings to our community sheltering at home.
To celebrate Earth Day, the Museum is hosting a special Storytime Live on April 22,
featuring a reading of the beloved children’s book, Dear Children of the Earth by Schim
Schimmel, a remarkable letter from Mother Earth asking for help from children everywhere.
