Welcome to Library Workshops!
We are delighted you have decided to share your passion and unique talents with the Library Workshop communities.
As our website (www.libraryworkshops.com) states, our workshops are created and taught by community members like yourself – you don’t need a teaching degree nor any traditional teaching experience or training. We’re simply looking for passionate people – like you – who love what they do.
To get started, please tell us a little more about yourself and the class you would like to teach with Library Workshops.
- Your Bio – Tell us a little about yourself, the skill or hobby you have that others may find fascinating, and why you are the best choice for teaching this workshop. Please also include your contact information so we can reach you (this will not be shared with the community).
- Your Class – Please provide a 300-word description of your workshop. This will help us market your class to the libraries, as well as the community. Include the title of your class and if it will be one or two hours. If you’ve created a syllabus for your class, you may provide that as well.
- Libraries – As a Library Workshop Instructor, you will be able to teach at any partnered public library. Currently, we are partnered with 11 libraries in various areas in Illinois. Please let us know which areas you are willing to teach in.
