Last month, Bartlesville Public Library started a new adulting program series called #lifehacks. Even though the series has started, those interested can still join at any time. This twelve monthly program series, tailored for young adults ages 16-23 years old, will provide basic skills and hacks on how to best handle everyday situations that adults commonly face, e.g. budgeting household expenses. Each program will also include a cooking segment instructed by Chef Tara Burkhead of Tri County Tech. Each program acts as a stand-alone class that cumulates into a “graduation” at the end of the series.

In the February #lifehacks cooking segment, Tara Burkhead will demonstrate how to take hamburger and chicken helper to the next level and how to roast vegetables. Afterwards, Sgt. Daniel Elkins of the Criminal Investigation Division of the City of Bartlesville Police Department will talk about personal safety, both online and self-defense. This class will be held on February 27 from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm.

All the classes in the #lifehacks series are free and will be held in the Library’s Meeting Room A. Walk-ins are welcome, but registration is preferred. To register or for more information, call the Reference desk at 918-338-4168.

The #lifehacks program series is made possible by a community grant from Phillips 66.
