Bringing People Together to Share and Learn

Learn Something New

Join us to try something new! We’re bringing people together to share and learn with free workshops and activities right in the middle of the Central Library. Almost every day we feature interesting, free-of-charge opportunities to learn something new and make new connections. Popular activities include ukulele lessons, tai chi sessions, arts and crafts, chess and other games, and more.

SkillShare sessions are listed on our online calendar. Or simply drop by and see what’s happening!

Share Your Skills

Do you have skills you’re willing to share? We invite you to present free SkillShare workshops at the Central Library. Hosts present their skills on a voluntary basis. All programs are free of charge and open to all.

We are looking for programs that support life-long learning, spark creativity and encourage self-expression. We especially like hosting activities that are not widely available or are not typically available free-of-charge.

SkillShare activities are listed on the library’s online calendar and in library promotional materials, so people can also plan ahead to participate. Drop-in participants are encouraged to join in as well.
