LANSING, Ill. (February 9, 2019) – “Everyone who comes really has a good time,” said Library Director Debbie Albrecht. Albrecht’s only regret about today’s How-To Festival was that even more people didn’t participate. Her vision is for Lansing’s How-To Festival to rival the one in Louisville, which attracts thousands of people to dozens of classes. “Of course, that’s a much bigger library,” she conceded.
The Lansing library hosted 19 classes today, each 30 minutes long. Library staff noted that the classes were larger than at the first How-To Festival, held last September.
The Festival included the following classes:
Karen Adams led two different sessions of “You Can Play the Ukulele.” By teaching students a few basic chords, she had them playing actual songs within 30 minutes:
Albrecht does plan to offer a third How-To Festival, and she hopes that as today’s participants talk about the fun they had and the skills they learned, interest will grow.
The Lansing Public Library is located at 2750 Indiana Avenue in Lansing, Illinois.
