NORTH BEND, Ore. -- A new program coming to North Bend Public Library later this month aims to teach young adults how to fend for themselves in the real world

Adulting 101 is a program for people who are just leaving home, primarily for the those between 16 and 25.

Organizers say it'll teach basic how-to skills they didn’t necessarily learn in school and things they’ll need to know once they're on their own.

"It's things that you need to know to survive out there and, of course, food is one of the most important things so we're going to teach some quick and easy ways to prepare food, ways to shop to get the best bargains, and we're going to teach you how to operate your checkbook, how to find roommates and places to live," said Assistant Director of Library Services Teresa Lucas.

The first session of Adulting 101 is scheduled for Saturday, February 25, at the North Bend Public Library.

The program will run monthly through July.
