Programs for Grown-Ups at Libraries
Most Libraries have great programs for children. But, what is being done for the grownups? What programs are there for adults at the library?
Here are Some Programs for Adults at the Library
- Lifelong learning classes Have some local teachers or the local community collage present seminars
- Free Computer Help Workshop Get a local expert from a repair shop or some kids to help
