San Leandro Main Library to Host Free “How To” Festival



The San Leandro Main Library, located at 300 Estudillo Avenue, will host its first “How To” Festival on Saturday, Sept. 19 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.


Over 40 indoor and outdoor stations will be set up throughout the Main Library to accommodate a rotating schedule of short presentations and hands-on activities from city departments, library staff, local businesses, nonprofit organizations and other community members.


“The idea behind this event is to encourage people to have fun learning new skills, interact with local organizations and businesses in our community and discover many of the great resources that San Leandro has to offer,” said Library Director Theresa Mallon.


Presenters will demonstrate a wide variety of topics, such as organizing a neighborhood watch, emergency preparedness and resources for first-time homebuyers.


Residents interested in the arts can learn comic-type sketching from an artist or learn a variety of dances. Local families can learn about the importance of kindergarten readiness from First 5 Alameda County and the services offered by Kiddie Kollege staff from the city’s Recreation Department.


Workshops and sessions will be located throughout the Main Library. Library table space, computer use and circulation services will be limited. Patrons seeking quiet table space are encouraged to use a local library branch instead.
