ALPLM offering free admission to visitors who donate backpacks

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD - The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is offering free admission to anyone who donates a backpack for needy students throughout July.

ALPLM officials say donors will be able to drop off a backpack and tour the museum immediately, or receive a coupon for free admission at a later date.  Donated backpacks should be new and sturdy enough to carry school supplies and books.

The backpacks will be given to Springfield School District officials during the ALPLM back-to-school party on August 10.  For more information about the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, visit
