Is there a way to sign up for email notifications for upcoming classes of interest?Thanks

Hi there. The closest we have to that is an RSS feed. Click on calendar view and then click the RSS Feed button at the top of the calendar. Hope this helps!

Hello,
I dropped a brochure as we teach MindFit classes to Senior Center off Hancock and various location.
I would like to propose a one hour Brain Health class and see if this would launch into a Mind Fit class if there is enough patron interest. Please contact me at your convenience, I dropped the flyers with Sherrie at the Front Desk, Century 21 library.

Hi, I'm Laura. I've recently left my corporate job and have been freelancing as an artist (with success!) I was wondering how someone goes about offering classes to the community for various skills - graphic design, illustration, drawing, prop making, etc.
Thanks!
