Spanish River Library Hosts Touch A Truck Program


Staff report

Round up the whole family to see, touch, climb aboard and learn about the city’s many fascinating trucks and vehicles at Touch a Truck.

In partnership with the City of Boca Raton’s Municipal Services, Utility Services, Recreation Services, and Police and Fire Departments, the Spanish River Library will host a day of trucks for the family from 9:30 a.m. to noon on March 16.

Truck operators will be on hand to demonstrate how their vehicles work and explain what they do. Check out a fire engine, sanitation truck, aerial bucket truck, dump truck, beach tractor, rescue boat and much more. Visitors are also invited inside the library for special story times and coloring pages featuring the trucks on display.

“I’m incredibly excited about the annual Touch a Truck event, which promises to be bigger, better, and more fun than ever!” said Michael J. Kalvort, Recreation Services Director, CPRE. “Boca Raton Public Libraries are dedicated to educating our citizens of all ages through innovative and engaging methods. It’s my hope that this event inspires many of our Boca kids to learn more about engineering, the public services our city provides, and the big trucks and machines that help us make Boca the great city it truly is.”

No enrollment is required. This free program will take place rain or shine. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
