    I love learning, so imagine my delight when I read the line-up of classes available at the Louisville Free Public Library‘s How-To Festival this weekend.

    The festival is made up of dozens of free classes that cover an impressive array of topics. This is the second year of the festival. The daylong event takes place Saturday, May 11, at the Main Branch of the library on York Street in Louisville.

    Some of the topics that guest teachers will cover include how to make rockets, groom your pet, build a terrarium, take a conflict to small claims court, and much more. There are also a plentiful selection of food-related courses.

    Here are some of the food-friendly classes I scoped out on the library’s website. Download a full schedule of classes here.

    • How to set a table — and encourage good manners and great conversation (I’ll need a bigger table first)
    • How to decorate mini-cupcakes — a series of quick lessons (Yumzies!)
    • How to make delicious no-knead bread (You had me at “no-knead”)
    • How to preserve food by canning — transforming seasonal fruits and vegetables to year-round staples, from jams to tomato sauce (One of my homemaker fantasies)
    • How to make the lima beans that make Mayan Café famous (This class might fill up fast. Those beans are famous.)
    • How to choose, sample and serve terrific cheeses (Does wine come with that class?)
    • How to make spectacular salads — three recipes with varied ingredients, techniques and dressings (Oooh, this will probably be more than just ranch and cheese.)
