Your Next Skill


Librarians at The Seattle Public Library are ready to partner with you in your pursuit of lifelong learning. What new skill would you like to learn? A computer programming language? Cooking a new cuisine? A new craft or hobby? Perhaps a new language? The possibilities are as endless as your curiosity.

Just as librarians can help you find Your Next Five books, they now can help you learn Your Next Skill. All you need to do is fill in an online form letting them know what you would like to learn and how you would like to learn it. Within a few days, librarians will provide you with a personalized learning list with books, videos, websites, and interactive apps. For Seattle-area users they can also recommend in-person classes or workshops.

Check out some of the examples of skills they’ve helped patrons learn. Be one of the first to try out this new Library service, and visit again and again to develop Your Next Skill!
