The Building Readers Club is your guide to explore the world of architecture, engineering, construction, and design found in the pages of children’s books. The primary educational program of the National Building Museum’s exhibition Building Stories, the Club provides suggested books to read and monthly activities to inspire children to find their place within a complex world and become agents of change for a more sustainable, equitable future in their own neighborhoods and built communities.
