SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- The Scarsdale Public Library is looking for residents of all ages to share their skills and knowledge as part of the National Library Week celebration, “54 Things at 54 Olmsted” during the week of April 10-16.
The 2016 National Library Week theme is “Libraries Transform.”
The Scarsdale Library joins libraries in schools, colleges and communities nationwide to celebrate the dynamic changes occurring in libraries today. Libraries are evolving to meet the needs of the communities they serve and helping to transform the lives of their patrons.
“Libraries historically have been places of lifelong learning,” said Library Director Elizabeth Bermel. “During ‘54 Things at 54 Olmsted,” residents will have the opportunity to come to the library to learn new things -- from how to arrange flowers to tips for effectively using the latest technology. We are constantly hearing about the hidden talents of patrons and are excited to offer this opportunity to showcase their skills in a way that benefits the whole community.”
Those with a skill or knowledge they wish to share should complete the online application by clicking here or stop by the Reference Desk in the library. Applications are due by March 21.
The skill or activity should be teachable in 5-30 minutes. Lessons will be taught in small groups or one-on-one.
Some possible topics include how to play a chord on the guitar, take a great photo, make pie crust, tie a scarf, decorate a cupcake, change a tire, play poker, do magic tricks, make balloon animals, do origami, start a blog, etc.
For questions, contact the Reference Desk at 914-722-1302 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Scarsdale Public Library is at 54 Olmsted Road.
