Free admission to the Volunteer Park Conservatory Dec. 24, 2018 though Feb. 28, 2019

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) and The Friends of the Conservatory (FOC) are pleased to announce that the Volunteer Park Conservatory will waive all admission fees Dec. 24, 2018 though the end of February, 2019.

Free admission to the Conservatory during this time period is made possible by a generous donation from the Bennett-Shear family – a gift from the children to celebrate their parents’ 40th wedding anniversary. Son Emmett Shear said, "We grew up walking to the Conservatory during my whole childhood, and I know my parents want everyone to be able to enjoy this beauty and peace. In their honor, I’m excited to be able to invite people to come for free to the Conservatory again.” (The Conservatory had been a free experience until 2013)

SPR and FOC encourage everyone, especially those who have never visited before, as well as school groups planning field trips, to take advantage of this opportunity to discover the Conservatory at no cost.

The Conservatory’s Poinsettia and Holiday Train Display will be up and running through January 1, 2019, and the FOC offers free docent tours by appointment Tuesdays through Sundays (except the first Saturday of the month). To schedule a tour, please email  foc@volunteerparkconservatory.org

The Conservatory’s regular hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed on Mondays except for the upcoming holidays). The Conservatory will be open on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Regular admission will be reinstated on March 1, 2019. Adults $4; Youth $2; Kids under age 12 are always free.

Many thanks to the Bennett-Shear Family for making the Conservatory accessible to all during this holiday season.

GET READY TO WORK WITH A JOB SKILLS CLASS AT THE SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY

This winter, The Seattle Public Library is hosting the Ready to Work program. You can get help with job hunting, learning English, computer skills and more.

10:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, Jan. 7 to March 14 at the Rainier Beach Branch, 9125 Rainier Ave. S., 206-386-1906.

Library programs are free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the branch parking lot. Registration is required, call 206-386-1906 to sign up. The deadline to register for winter quarter classes is Dec. 26.

The Ready to Work program is for Seattle residents who are low income and want to learn English, learn computer skills or get a job. The program helps people with very limited English (ESOL levels 1-3) work towards economic self-sufficiency.

Ready to Work classes take place four days a week. They combine English language learning with job placement services and ongoing work skills training. Here's what you'll learn in class:

Exploring different careers
Job-hunting skills
Communicating at work
Planning next steps in work and education

This program is presented in partnership with the city of Seattle, HomeSight, Asian Counseling and Referral Service, Seattle Colleges and Literacy Source. Our goal is to empower and support immigrants, refugees and others to overcome barriers to reach milestones on their difficult journey to economic stability, quality jobs and integration into life in Seattle.

The Library brings people, information and ideas together to enrich lives and build community. We support universal access to information and ideas, and form strong partnerships with community organizations to offer classes and workshops that are accessible to all.
