One of the Silver Jubilee Appeal funded projects is the creation of a children’s book about the History of King’s Lynn. There a number of books available on this subject, but none which are accessible to a younger audience. Readers will be guided through a timeline of the town’s history by Nick and Margaret, illustrated by local artist Colleen O'Brien. The book also includes images from the Museum’s archive and from the Borough and County archives.
Work on the book started in September 2015 and a full first draft will soon be making visits to local schools to get feedback from children. The Museum hopes to be able to present local Year 3 children with free copies of the book. Once published the book will be available to buy at True’s Yard for £9.99.
