Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site brings Sandburg’s work back to the stage this summer in free public performances of The World of Carl Sandburg and Rootabaga Stories. These 30-minute programs feature the cast and directors from The Vagabond School of the Drama, an apprentice program of the Flat Rock Playhouse. Performances are held at the park amphitheatre adjacent to the historic Sandburg home.

There are over 12,000 books in the Main House. It takes over six YEARS to clean all the books in Carl Sandburg's collection. Cleaning books is a routine task for the museum staff at Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site. The books are cleaned to reduce pests like silverfish from eating these valuable artifacts.
