In anticipation of Mother’s Day on May 12th, the Baldwin Public Library held the “Mother’s Day Trinket Box” event the day prior, welcoming children from kindergarten through 2nd grade to craft personalized trinket boxes for the special women in their lives.

A trinket box, a small container typically used for storing jewelry, keepsakes, or other small items, traces its origins to ancient civilizations like the Egyptians and Greeks. The term “trinket box” gained prominence during the 19th century, when these boxes, often intricately adorned, became popular as gifts or cherished mementos for storing small, valuable items or tokens of affection.
