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!

Here is another array of things you can learn at our "how-to" stations on October 5:

Burbank keyboard player/producer Dave Goldstein will tell you how to form a band! From 1:00 p.m., at half-hour intervals.

Did you ever wonder how you could go to Japan, Korea or Botswana as part of the Burbank Sister City student exchange program? Doug Grimshaw and Dena Zelig will tell you how. Four opportunities to learn.

Learn how to search for your genealogical roots for FREE, with Mike McDaniel, co-founder of the Burbankia website. At 1:00 and 2:00.

Don't you wish you could excel at the beautiful writing known as calligraphy? Learn how, with Sylvia Kowal and Dee Anderson from the Society for Calligraphy. Five sessions, featuring a different alphabet at each!

Find out how to knit 1, purl 2, with Laura Mitchell and Lisa Greenburg from Unwind. Starting at 12:30, at half-hour intervals.
