Some skills participants can learn are how to tie a bow tie, do a yoga sun salutation, practice the Thriller dance, winterize a lawn mower, and decorate cupcakes. This free event is for teens and adults and no sign up is required. Visit the library's home page at Woodfordcountylibrary.org for the full list of 20 lessons.

Latitude Artist show starts Sunday

A reception for the Latitude Artist Community Show will be 2:30-4:30 p.m. Sunday in the Main Library's Gallery.

The show runs Nov. 10-Dec. 31. Founded in 2001, the Latitude Artist Community serves all people — with an emphasis on those with a disability — by allowing artists to contribute culturally and politically to their community.

Latitude received the 2012 Community Art Center award from the Kentucky Arts Council Governor's Awards in the Arts.

Red Tie Gala comes back
