From 2 to 5 p.m. local organizations and librarians will lead short, 45-minute interactive classes on lifestyle, crafting, education, and more.

Session topics include:

Acquiring new skills stimulates areas in the brain that encourage positive thinking and well-being, which can lead to making people happier as individuals and oftentimes more marketable as job-seekers. Research also suggests that this creative outlet enhances self-esteem and confidence, so mark your calendars and stop by the Literacy House at 101 E. North Street for as few or as many How To sessions as you like.

Exact times for sessions can be viewed on the library's calendar.
