Kankakee Public Library hosting programs

The Kankakee Public Library at 201 E. Merchant St. in Kankakee is hosting the following programs:

Poet’s Arrow — 6 p.m. Jan. 21. This event offers artists a venue to display their gifts in their respective talents in front of an audience. All ages are welcome! In this judgment-free environment, performers will be able to express their voice and support one another to take on the mic.

Whether you want to perform or listen to the performances, Poet’s Arrow invites everyone to listen to an array of local artistry. The event will be free and open to the public.

Toastmasters — 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Do you want to improve your public speaking and leadership skills? Join the Toastmasters in the third floor meeting room.

Whether it’s verbal or non-verbal, communication isn’t optional. Develop and hone your skills with Toastmasters to give you the confidence you need.

In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Kankakee Public Library will be closed Monday. The library will reopen at 9 a.m. the following Tuesday (Jan. 21).
