That's SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, for Burbank Public Library's “HOW-TO” FESTIVAL!

We are celebrating 100 years of library service in Burbank that day at the Central Library, by giving you the chance to learn a little about a lot!

All over the library there will be "how-to" stations. Here are a few tantalizing "for instances" of things you can learn:

At 10:30 a.m., you can find out how to launch a career in animation! Chance Raspberry, animation artist, will tell you how to create your own projects, from making the cartoons/comics to funding their production and building a fan base!

At 11:00, you can learn how to hold and use chopsticks and find out about the all-important etiquette of using them, with Tomoko Serizawa of the Burbank Sister City Committee.

Need to relieve some stress? (Who doesn't?) Discover how with Marcy Johnson, from Yoga Blend, also at 11 a.m.

At 11:30, you can hear about how to create your own memoir in six words, with Stefanie Elkins from Leeza's Care Connection.

Want to be a better pet parent?  Get the five basic steps from author/instructor and Pet Industry Woman of the Year Denise Fleck, at 12:30.

At 1:30, Narae Gharabagi will demonstrate how to craft beautiful paper roses from recycled books.

Also at 1:30, you can learn to master a simple card trick with renowned magician David Regal.

Didn't see a topic to interest you? There are 50 more from which to choose! We'll feature a few more here on the blog in a couple of days, and soon the entire day's SCHEDULE will be available on our website, so keep checking back!

A few things you need to know about this special day:
  • The Central Library will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Computers and reference will not be available that day at Central. 
  • Buena Vista Branch will be open regular hours with Internet access and Reference staff available.
We hope you will Celebrate the Century with us on October 5!
