How-to Fest Teaching Free Skills to Communities at Public Library
Ever wanted to get the education of a lifetime all in one day? Come to the Melrose Public Library’s “How-to Fest” to learn more than 15 trades from skilled experts in just hours! A wide range of programs catered to all different ages will be held at the library’s “How-To Fest”.
On Wednesday, July 25th starting at 1:00 pm, join local authors, artists, craftspeople, chefs, musicians, businesses, dance virtuosos and more at the library for an afternoon of sharing their passions with you… the curious students! From “how to make a fairy garden house” to “how to weave”—this event is sure to introduce you to new skills! There will be booths set up with demonstrations running throughout a 3 hour period, and the library will provide a schedule so that you can attend the “lessons” of your choice!
For the adults, the program boasts local instructor Karen Goff as she instructs a class on QiGong and Tai Chi for all ages! Or learn how to write a book with author CS Bennett. Learn to raise chickens, fire safety, and sing in a group—among other interesting things!
For the younger crowd, we’ll be learning “how to be a karate kid” with instructors from Nomad’s Martial Arts—as well as participating in a sing-along with the Under the Porch Singers and more!
Local musician and music instructor (from Music Lessons Inc. in Palatka) Seth Hemphill will bring his talents to the library for the teenage attendees with “how-to play beginning guitar”—and William Sistrunk will teach “how to fold origami”!
You won’t want to miss this free program provided by the Melrose Public Library, Putnam County Public Library System, and the talented lake area community. For more information about the event please contact Melrose Public Library Branch Manager Sheree Sims at 352.475.1237.
