LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- From milking a cow, to building a robot, even stopping a leaky faucet.

Those are fun -- and sometimes necessary skills -- people could learn during five hours of the "How-To Festival" at Louisville's Free Public Library downtown Saturday.

Patrons could choose from more than 100 short classes in an event that has become popular over the last five years.

"The library's mission is to support lifelong learning in Louisville. And this is a great way to learn a whole bunch of new things, so what an exciting event to have where you cram all kinds of different things into a short period of time, and you just run around just trying to learn as much as you can," said Paul Burns of the library.

Other activities included how to read tarot cards, create a banana piano, even how to age gracefully.
