Madison, WI - How do you play Minecraft or make your own screen print? Madison Public Library is giving the public a chance to find out during their 2nd annual How-To Fest, a week-long series of free workshops led by fellow community members wanting to share their knowledge and passions with others. 

How-To Fest welcomes the general public to explore unique activities, master new skills, and broaden their understanding of a variety of topics. “Preservation 101,” “Writing Gratitude Poems,” and “Gift Boxes and Bags” are just some of the many eclectic events the library will be hosting. While some workshops are geared to a certain age group, everyone will find something to enjoy during How-To Fest.
