What is Your Next Skill?

Your Next Skill


Seattle is a city of learners.

Tell us what skill you want to learn. Librarians are standing by to help you.

What will it be? A new language? A new hobby? Something for the home or at work? The possibilities are endless. 

Here are a few ideas:

  • Computer skills
  • Cooking
  • Car repair
  • Arts and crafts
  • New languages
  • Writing and editing


You simply fill out this online form to let us know what you want to learn and how you want to learn it. For Seattleites, we can also recommend in-person classes or workshops (and let you know if there are any associated costs to participate.) A librarian will contact you via email within four days with your personalized lesson plan. 

There is no limit to what we can help you learn so use this service as often as you like!

We are able to offer the Your Next Skill Service thanks in part to a Knight Foundation Prototype Grant and with the support of The Seattle Public Library Foundation.
