For those who want to learn to juggle, swing dance, kayak, raise chickens, pick a winning horse at the track, knit, make beer, start a conversation, fold origami - and much more -- the Louisville Free Public Library will become a one-stop How-To extravaganza Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at the Main Library, 301 York Street.
Throughout the library's free five-hour How-To Festival, people can also learn about keeping bees, packing a small suitcase for a big trip, cooking a perfect omelet, composting, Zumba, or saving money with coupons.
Dozens of local experts will join the library in a lively series of lessons, hands-on experiences and panels - from a 5-minute demonstration of how to use chopsticks to 45 minutes of salsa dancing or tai chi.
Some presenters will demonstrate how to teach dogs new tricks, run a great meeting, try yoga, cook fish, pick great wines on a budget, barbeque like a champion, improve a jump shot, repair a bike, bird-watch, skate like a Derby City Roller Girl, win at Scrabble, publish a book, commute to work on your bike or fix a flat on your bike. . . even create an art car.
And there will be plenty of how-to presentations that showcase technology and online resources, including planning travel online, how to borrow eBooks from the Library, how to get started with online dating, how to use Skype and how to sell your stuff online.
Workshops and sessions will be located throughout the Main Library and outside on the grounds.
The How-To Festival is part of the Library's ongoing mission of lifelong learning.
