"Public Libraries at Work" Webinar Series


Make Way for Makerspaces
in the Library

Wednesday, October 17, 2012
1:00 p.m. Central


Join Lauren Britton, transliteracy development director at the Fayetteville (N.Y.) Free Library, and creator of the first public library makerspace, the Fayetteville Fab Lab for the hour-long webinar "Make Way for Makerspaces in the Library."<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT0yNjc5OTIyJnA9MSZ1PTEwMjAwMTYxNDEmbGk9MTM1NjkwNzc/index.html>

Makerspaces are innovative spots that introduce patrons to tools, like 3D printers and makerbots, not normally found in the library and offer patrons the opportunity to explore their interests, use new technologies, and develop creative projects. Come learn why your library should have one! Lauren will share project and programming ideas and examples of current library makerspaces, as well as answer attendee questions.
