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!
JULY 11-Join us to create a beautiful, beach-themed wooden flag from paint sticks. You will learn how to make your own chalk paint too. Class is free. All materials provided. Social distancing will be practiced. Masks are encouraged.
Sign up is required. Monthly craft sign-ups open the Monday or Tuesday after the preceding class occurs. Call 850-682-4432 with questions.
Come and learn about different types of gardening; discuss tools to use; discover local resources; hear from guest speakers and so much more.
There are so many ways to enjoy gardening, from start to finish. This class is an introduction into the wonderful world of farming. Not only will you be introduced to the different types of gardening, but also to tools you will need or want. Not sure what to plant? This could just be the perfect way to spend your Saturday as we will discuss what to plant and why.
Need some local resources? Perfect, we will be giving a lot of local resources in various demographics.
Want to get your kids excited about eating vegetables but don’t know how… Learn to grow a garden together and they will love what they harvest.
