• Steampunk Saturday is back!

    Grab your goggles, put on your Steampunk outfit if you have one, and head over to the library on Saturday, October 8, from noon to 4:00 for a family friendly event with lots to do!

    Starting with a talk by Lucretia Strange about Steampunk, the program includes crafts for all ages, and free Victorian-style souvenir photos. The costume contest (two levels--beginners and experienced Steampunks) is at 1:30.

    For those into gaming, author Ken Vinson will provide a demo of his role-playing game Brass and Steel in Meeting Room D.

    Back by popular demand, Tea Dueling will begin at 2:30. How steady is your hand--can you keep your biscuit (cookie) from crumbling longer than your opponent?
