Making Your Space: Creators and Makers in the Library

Join this webinar to learn how to grow a maker space or creation space in your library.

This event has passed.

There’s a transformation going on in libraries—a shift in emphasis from consuming information to convening and creating. Makerspaces in libraries are a big part of this conversation, where the learning and camaraderie are just as significant as tools like 3D printers. If the idea of a makerspace conjures up the hurdles for you (limited space, limited resources, or limited confidence in your own tech skills), this webinar will help you learn how to get started and grow a space in your library for creating. Together, we will debunk the hype, learn how to define your library’s scope and audience, get your board on board, and find creative partners in your community.

Presented by: Mara Siegel, Continuing Education Coordinator, Vermont Department of Libraries; and Samantha Maskell, Youth Services Librarian, Rockingham Free Public Library, Bellows Falls, VT
