THIRTY-TWO classes. ONE day. THIRTY minutes each.

The North Canton Public Library will host its fourth annual How-to Festival Saturday, March 2 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The festival will offer 32 classes in six hours. Each class will be 30 minutes long, with as many as five intro level classes hosted in various library spaces concurrently.

“The How-to Festival in one of our favorite days of the year,” said Christina Weyrick, community relations manager for the library. “The event is a true community collaboration bringing together experts on a variety of topics and knowledge seekers of all levels,” Weyrick explained.

Attendees will learn how to: solve dog behavior problems, style hair with modern wave looks, write a novel in a month, create a natural medicine cabinet, use natural health products with your pets, train a cat, find the best local restaurants, set up a model train set, improve health with honey, make slime, personalize Windows 10, be a peaceful parent, get garden plants started, tidy up clothing and book collections using the KonMari method, help abandoned/injured wildlife, know if a hedgehog is the right pet for them, get started with tai chi, make cake pops, find the best fare when flying, draw manga, have a calmer life with mindfulness, help farm animals right here in NE Ohio, have a meaningful conversation with children, change a flat tire on a bicycle, do chair yoga, find their next great read, have a kid and pet safe lawn, salt paint, make wire and stone earrings, and play Dungeons and Dragons.

The festival extends through the lunch hour, and the library will provide a free brown bag lunch to attendees thanks to a sponsorhip from CSB: The Commercial & Savings Bank. The library’s teen advisory board will also host a bake sale to benefit Refuge of Hope during the event.

The How-to Festival is open to everyone. There is no registration required, and all classes are first come, first served. For additional information about the event, please contact Christina Weyrick at 330.499.4712 x331 or cweyrick@northcantonlibrary.org.
