Castles! @ Crestview Library Tickets

Castles! @ Crestview Library

Ages 9 and up

From presenter Brian Hughes:

They were — and sometimes are — home to kings and queens, princes and princesses, dukes and duchesses, sometimes prisoners and, if legends are to be believed, even the occasional ghost, mad scientist, vampire and dragon.

They’re castles! And at the Crestview Public Library at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, July 8, I’m going to tell you all about them because, to tell the truth, I’m just castle-crazy! I love castles, I’ve explored a bunch of them, and I’ve even stayed in a few.

Come join me in the main meeting room where we’ll keep our social distance and learn how and why a typical medieval castle was built and take a look at some of the world’s most famous — and perhaps infamous — castles.

To help you prepare for what I hope will be a fun hour of exploring castles, check out the display of castle models in the library lobby. You’ll see two models of Neuschwanstein Castle, built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, who moved into his romantic new home in 1882. It’s my favorite castle in Europe ever since I first saw it in “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.” Want to know what amazingly advanced technological features it had? Come to my castle class and find out!

If you don’t mind, please consider wearing a face mask, just to keep you, your fellow patrons and us bug-free!
