Steampunk at the Hernando County Library

Again, I’m a little late with this post, but it took a while for my friend at the library to post the pictures.  Add a nonstop work weekend and a an obsession to finish The Hunger Games Trilogy and you get a late post.

A few months ago, a classmate who has since graduated asked for my help with a Steampunk program she was planning for the Summer programming.  I told her some books to peruse, gave her some info, and forwarded some presentations I did for Preparing Instructional Media last summer, then I offered to loan her some of my costumes.  With a little help from me and my mom we had her and her co-worker decked out in some of our Steampunk finery.

On Thursday July, 25th I helped out with the program by giving a short presentation on what Steampunk is and it’s history, then we let the teens chose their crafts.  There was a duck tape top hat, jewelry, a barrette, and a journal.  The kids had a blast!  The absolutely loved the crafts and gushed over the jewelry handmade jewelry I brought with me.  They  had a lot of fun and so did I.

The library even said they had interest from adults in a Steampunk event.  I’d love to help them out again.  For pictures of the event, please see the Hernando County Library System’s Facebook page.
