9:00 am Reach Higher: College Signing Day

Deciding where you’re going to college is exciting. It’s a major step toward a person’s future, and it should feel like an epic occasion. College students and graduates can celebrate with incoming freshmen by wearing college gear and posting selfies with the hashtags #CollegeSigningDay, #SigningSelfie, and #BetterMakeRoom.

Better Make Room is inviting their partners to celebrate at a time that is best for their schedules, anywhere between mid-April to early June. If you are hosting an event, let them know here so they can stay in touch with more details!

10:00 am How-To Festival

Want to learn how to belly dance? Make origami? Raise chickens? Brew Turkish coffee? These are just a sample of more than 100 things you can learn in five hours at the Louisville Free Public Library’s annual How-To Festival.

This year’s Festival is a mix of past favorites—how to make a robot, bullet journal, and train your dog—along with new lessons, such as how to dance a Renaissance jig, spot fake news, and write Arabic calligraphy. Kid-friendly activities include how to make ice cream in a bag, how to play percussion from around the world, and more!
