We're celebrating National Hobby Month this January at our libraries by offering many free programs for you to discover your new hobby. Join us as we introduce you to hobbies such as knitting and crochet, genealogy and family research, art, and more. Those who enjoy reading as a hobby can join one of our book clubs. As always, all of our programs are free and open to the public!
Check out the list of programs below.
Instruction in knitting, crochet, quilting and other yarn craft activities will be offered at multiple branches throughout January. Attendees will learn basic techniques as well as special stitches. No prior experience is required to attend programs, and attendees are encouraged to bring projects they are currently working on to class. Space may be limited. Those interested are encouraged to contact the branches for further details.
Hobbyists looking for a more creative flair may find their niche in art classes and programs offered at the library. Supplies are provided for these classes, and registration may be required.
Those interested in learning about genealogy and beginning family research projects are encouraged to visit the Genealogy Department, located in the Broadmoor Branch. The Genealogy Department will host several classes and workshops to help familiarize those interested with the resources and services available through the library. Space may be limited. Please contact the Genealogy Department at 318-869-0120 for more information and to register.
Reading can also be considered a hobby, and we have many opportunities for book lovers to share their interest with others. Upcoming book club meetings are scheduled as listed below.
