HOW-TO in 10 Festival and Road Show

Uxbridge Public Library

9 Toronto St. South

Durham Region Libraries will be hosting the third annual, award winning, How-To in 10 Festival and Road Show, at six Library locations across the region on six dates. The festival grew from the idea that people love to learn new things but never have enough time. We decided that we could make learning new and useful skills easy, fun, free and convenient by holding a How-to in 10 Festival where people come together to learn new things and have a great time in the process. The various Library festivals will take place over different time spans from May to June. Visit www.howtoin10.com for more detailed information and a list of previous vendors and pictures. The events have had tremendous exposure across the region. Local media has done several features, the Ontario Library Association featured it at their annual super conference this year and we won an award from the Durham Art of Transition Creative Awards for best in Festivals and Events. The Uxbridge Public Library's event will be Saturday, June 13 from 11:00am-3:00pm.

Participating in a garden tour is a great source of entertainment even if you are not an avid gardener.
