It’s called Adulting 101.
Participants will learn “adulting” skills including car maintenance, budgeting, sewing, basic cooking, and more.
Librarian Melissa Hill said she got the idea after working with teens in other programs.
“As we were doing some of the craft projects, like sewing our own Christmas stockings, you’d be surprised how many 16-year-olds had no idea how to thread a needle. And it’s like guys if you pop a button what are you gonna do? And they’re like, ‘Buy a new shirt?’ I was like no,” said Hill.
Classes are geared for ages 15-25 and are held at 4 p.m. every other Wednesday at the Pike County Public Library on Lee Avenue.
