SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Scarsdale Public Library is celebrating National Library Week, April 10 to 16, by offering the community the opportunity to learn “54 Things at 54 Olmsted.”
Each day of the week, residents and local businesses owners will share their talents and knowledge during free drop-in classes and workshops at the library.
“There truly is something for everyone,” remarked Scarsdale Library Director, Elizabeth Bermel. “This year’s theme of National Library week is 'Libraries Transform.' ‘54 Things at 54 Olmsted’ is a wonderful opportunity for community members to transform themselves with a new skill learned at one of Scarsdale’s central gathering places – the library. We know there is a lot of talent in Scarsdale and we are thrilled by the willingness of people to share their knowledge during this exciting week.”
Programming for “54 Things at 54 Olmsted” will begin on Sunday, April 10, at noon. The diversity of offerings range from an introduction to knitting to mindful yoga to how to tie a tie for children. Library staff members will also be on hand throughout the week to transform patrons’ user experience by teaching visitors how to navigate the library’s many online resources, from ebooks to audiobooks.
A full downloadable schedule can be found on the library website. Copies of the schedule are also available at the library. All classes are free and open to the public on a first come, first served basis, as space for some classes is limited. Each class is appropriate for community members of all ages, unless otherwise noted.
