Skillshare Programs at the Library Print E-mail

This spring at DeKalb County Public Library, you can learn some exciting skills—the basics of Zumba, how to create collages, and how to select a campsite ...even how to learn some acting skills! What's exciting as well is that all these workshops are being presented free of charge by people from the community who want to share their special talents.

This initiative is called Skillshare. It gives people from the community the opportunity to share their special knowledge and skills related to hobbies or arts and crafts with others through library-hosted workshops.

Library Employees Show Their Creative Talents Print E-mail

DeKalb County Public Library staff members are using their creative skills to help the system raise money to offset budget cuts. For the third consecutive year, staff are displaying and, in many instances, selling their artistic works as part of the system’s annual Employee Art Expo. The works—including photographs and crocheted items—will be on display at the Decatur Library during October and November.

If you see something you would like to purchase, ask about it at the Decatur Circulation Desk. Proceeds from items sold will go to the DeKalb Library Foundation.
