There will be something for everyone at the How-To Festival – bring the whole family and all your friends! Learn new things, meet your neighbors, and have fun. All you’ll need is a plan for lunch – bring your own, visit the Farmer’s Market, or head downtown. The rest is on the library!

Don’t forget to pick up your door prize tickets at the Welcome Table!  We will draw winners at the Closing Ceremonies at 3 PM.  You do not need to be present to win.

Events, times, locations, and presenters are subject to change.
