LFPL – Music Streaming – How-to and More

April 11, 2013  
The How-To Festival returns to the Main Library, May 11, featuring new things to learn — and new people to teachWant to learn to make sushi? Juggle? Grow hot peppers? Bike cross-country? Make a wedding cake on a budget? Ask for the raise you deserve at work? Use “office yoga” to reduce workday aches-and-pains? 

Those are just a sample of the more than 50 things people will be able to learn FREE at the Louisville Free Public Library’s second annual How-To Festival, Saturday, May 11, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Main Library, 301 York Street.

A few popular presenters will return, but most of this year’s How-To Festival is all-new.  Among the non-stop presentations are local musicians who will perform and share how-to experiences – like how they write songs, get over stage fright and get their work heard. Among them: Brigid Kaelin; Carly Johnson and members of Liberation Prophecy; Steve Cooley of Hog Operation; Robbie Bartlett; Kyle James Hauser; Greg Acker and members of the Pride of Kentucky Chorus Sweet Adelines.  

For more information, including a list and schedule of How-To Festival sessions as the date gets closer, go to LFPL.org/how-to.
