"Knights and ladies" inspire kids in Eugene, Oregon

Library assistant Cynthia Olsen wanted to introduce kids to the Middle Ages, so she invited members of the Society for Creative Anachronism to bring their knowledge and skills to the Eugene Public Library. Winston Ross of the Register-Guard has the story.

Children attending the event enjoyed a story followed by activities such as learning about heraldry and constructing a henin. The program was called “Welcome, Lords and Ladies,” and it was a part of the library's weekly series of free events for families.
