 doubts about whether it works, and some think it's over. Well, we’re here to tell you, it's still going strong! Nebraska's state-wide lifelong learning program, Nebraska Learns 2.0, started as a 16 week program in 2008-2009. The original program was so popular
 it has continued as an ongoing program, with one new Thing offered each month since April 2009. Starting in February 2012, a BookThing was added to the program. Program organizers Christa Burns and Michael Sauers will talk about the process they have laid
 out over the past few years, how they've responded to participant feedback, and how the program became what it is today. They will also show other current examples of self-directed online learning programs, such as Boston Public Library's Learning for Life
 Online and the UK-based 23 Things for Professional Development.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p class="MsoNoSpacing" style="margin-left:.5in"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">Makerspaces are taking hold in the library world and they are spreading quickly, popping up in libraries of all types and sizes. Makerspaces give
 people a place to pursue their own interests in building things, using tools (physical or virtual) and connecting with one another. Libraries have expanded on traditional library services to provide DIY/craft/make services, setting up spaces within their buildings
 and within their communities that allow people to do anything from building model airplanes to 3-D printing to self-publishing novels. <br>
<br>
Learn what makerspaces are and how they work from librarians who are on the cutting edge of this movement by attending our upcoming series of free webinars. Each webinar will feature a panel of staff, administration, and patrons from one of the libraries that
 have implemented a makerspace. They’ll talk about how their makerspace concept began, how it was designed and how it was implemented. You’ll learn about the maker movement in general, the role libraries are playing specifically, and get ideas about how you
 can get involved and start a makerspace in your library!<o:p></o:p></span></p>
