More 'Living Green' Classes Coming

The Wylde Center and the Decatur Library will continue their collaboration.

Back in February, the Wylde Center and the Decatur Library announced a series of free classes with the "Living Green" theme.

The classes were so successful that more classes will be offered this month and in 2013. All the classes are free and will be held in the library at 215 Sycamore St. You don't have to register in advance.

Here's the list of upcoming classes provided by the Wylde Center..
