The next viewing in the TED Talk series hosted by the library will take place from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 5, at the Waynesville branch, 678 S. Haywood St.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks that last about 18 minutes or less. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design (TED) converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.

TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. The creators of TED believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.

Every other month, come watch a 15-20 minute TED talk and then discuss. April's talk is titled "Your Elusive Creative Genius."

Registration is required. Call 356-2507 or email kolsen@haywoodnc.net. All of the TED talks in this series have been chosen from the list of the top 20 most watched talks.
