Imagine if the Victorian era had never ended— what would our lives be like now?  Find out at Your Home Public Library’s Steampunk Party on Monday, August 25th at 7:00 PM.  Come in costume and enjoy crafts, refreshments, and hands-on science experiments.  We’ll be giving out prizes for Best Youth Costume and Best Adult Costume.  Don’t have a costume?  Drop into the library at 6:30, and create a Steampunk corsage, hat, or mask.  This will be the event of the summer…don’t miss it!

Interested in learning more about Steampunk style and perhaps getting some costume ideas for the party?  We highly recommend the following book available right here at Your Home Public Library: Steampunk Style: the complete illustrated guide for contraptors, gizmologists and primocogglers everywhere!, by Steampunk Oriental Laboratory.
