Do you have a artistic skill, hobby or ability that you believe others could learn from? Would you like to share your knowledge with students of all ages?  L.E Phillip's Memorial Library will be hosting a "dabbler in residence" throughout the Spring and Summer here in Eau Claire through their Dabble Box program. 

The residencies will run for four weeks, with three two-hour classes per week, with the sessions running from March 2–27 and August 3–29. Before you panic about how to fund your dabbling tutorials, remember that you won't necessarily have to pay out-of-pocket for supplies, with a $750 stipend and up to $500 in supply reimbursement made available through the L.E Phillips Memorial Public Library Endowment Fund. 

If you are interested in applying to be a dabbler in residence or for more information about the Dabble Box program, visit  With the application deadline being this December 15, participants are encouraged to apply sooner than later!
