Lincoln County’s public libraries’ Every Hero Has a Story summer reading programs bring the Knights of Veritas to the coast this week on Wednesday and Thursday, June 17 & 18. All children and families are invited to attend one of these free programs.
Wednesday, June 17, the Knights will be at Waldport Public Library (10 a.m.), Newport Public Library (1 p.m.), and Driftwood Public Library in Lincoln City (6:30 p.m.). On Thursday, June 18, they will be at Toledo Public Library (11 a.m.) and Siletz Public Library (1:00 p.m.).
The Knights of Veritas present the lives of medieval knights based on current scholarship, archaeology and interpretation of period sources; the clothing, armour and weapons are accurate to the originals in form and design, using period materials and accurate in detail right down to the buttons and buckles. Knights even bring a display case featuring a selection of real, genuine medieval antiquities. And of course, no presentation is complete without a discussion of the Code of Chivalry. What makes a knight a knight? Hint: it isn’t the sword or the armour… though both of those items will make an appearance during the library programs.
These programs are paid for by the Lincoln County Library District’s Ready to Read grant money from the Oregon Legislature. For more information about the Knights of Veritas show or other summer reading presentations, please contact your local library.
