Historical Swords

Last week we had historical sword experts Jeff Goodhind and Jeff Lord here at the library for a presentation and a demonstration of swords through the ages! We learned sword-fighting techniques and about the differences between various swords. It was pretty cool!!

We have the LEGO kits! We have the laptops! The camcorders should be here soon!

Our first workshop is scheduled for Monday, December 8 at 3:30pm in the Storytime Room of the Children's Department. We will be holding holding workshops monthly. Children are encouraged to participate every month because the lessons are cumulative.

Registration will be required and will begin three (3) weeks prior to the program on November 17. You may register online or in the Children's Room. Questions? Email, call (781) 721-7171 x326, or visit the Children's Room for more information.
