How can we get families to interact with our materials and fellow staff members to understand what we do?  In seeking to answer this question, the Denver Public Library's Western History/Genealogy Department developed the Time Travel Trunk—a customized steamer trunk that brings activities and facsimile historical materials to 25 public library branches across the Denver metro area. The Time Travel Trunk is an experiment in bringing the archives out—and making it easy and engaging.
