Oct: Beyond 3D Printers: Strategies for Makerspace Success (Booklist)

Tuesday, Oct. 7 (12-1 pm Mountain)

When someone mentions "makerspace," do you hear, "Buy a 3D printer?" While digital fabrication tools can be a robust part of a library makerspace, they're not the only options. From lanyards to laser cutters and crochet to coding, all kinds of crafts and skills are welcome in makerspaces. In this free, hour-long webinar sponsored by Cherry Lake, Kristin Fontichiaro, clinical assistant professor at the University of Michigan School of Information, will discuss strategies to help create a maker culture in your library that welcomes and supports all patrons and their creations. Moderated by Booklist’s Books for Youth editorial director Gillian Engberg.
