Transfer out of the School of Hard Knocks with Adulting 101

By Jamie Jones

Have you ever said “I wish someone had taught me that in school?”  Or perhaps you’ve spent hours browsing YouTube “How To” videos desperately trying to self-teach some small but crucial task?  If these frustrating experiences sound familiar, then the Adulting 101 program series is for you!  Starting in June 2019, you can join Peoria Public Library staff at McClure Branch in covering those countless little skills that adults often need but simply aren’t taught in any formal sense. Of course, that’s not to say that these programs will be formal!  Indeed, we aim to provide a fun, casual, and judgment-free environment for exploration and learning about a variety of topics, ranging from practical skills like financial literacy or home and/or vehicle maintenance to more intangible skills like active listening or self-care. 

So far, the topics scheduled are Calm Your Clutter (Thursday, June 20 at 5:00 pm), Grilling 101 (Thursday, July 11 at 5:00 pm), and Budgeting Basics (with a special guest speaker from Navicore – Thursday, July 18 at 5:00 pm).  If you would like to suggest a topic that you’re interested in learning more about or have any questions about the program, please contact McClure Branch staff at 309-497-2701.  Stay tuned to the library newsletter or online calendar for additional dates and topics!
