LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Derby Festival has come and gone, just in time for another event to kick off in Louisville.

It was a day of knowledge at the Louisville Public Library for the annual How-To Festival.

Several hundred people learned how to do up to 100 different things in five hours, and it was all for free.

Some of those things included how to raise chickens, make a robot, and brewing Turkish coffee. All lessons were taught by experts in each field.

Each session lasted anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes.

"[I] thought 'wow, this would be a great idea to bring all this community knowledge together at one place at one time and have folks come in for this wonderful day of learning," Library Director Jim Blanton said. 

Other sessions included how to grow tomatoes, how to train a new dog and how to spot fake news.
