Library Workshops Needs Your Help

We're looking for passionate community educators who have a story to tell, a hobby to share, a skill to teach and want to make a real difference in their community (as well as $40 an hour).


Library Workshops has partnered with some of the most forward-thinking public libraries in Southern Illinois to create a first-of-it’s kind community education program and we need your help to make it stronger.

Soon your library will be offering a wide variety of exciting, engaging and fun leisure learning, small business and family enrichment opportunities. These workshops are created and taught by community members, regular people just like. You don’t need a teaching degree, nor any traditional teaching experience or training. We’re simply looking for passionate people who love what they do. 

We need jewelry makers, fisherman, painters, sketch artists, cookie decorators, social media experts, vacation packers, animal trainers, sculptors, musicians, website designers, writers, photographers and more. 

 If you’ve got a verifiable skill, can create an engaging one or two-hour presentation, provide a written syllabus and a 300 description (to help us market your class) then you might just be able to teach with us.

In return Library Workshop instructors are paid $40 per hour (for the hours they teach) and can teach at any partnered library. It’s that simple. We even offer free group training sessions and marketing assistance for our teachers.

To get the conversation started, send an email to We'll get back with you as soon as we can. Library Workshop Instructors can teach at the Belleville, O'Fallon, Glen Carbon, Carlyle, Sandoval, Odin, Centralia, Hoffman, and Irvington libraries.
