Maker Days

 Maker Days - 10 Do-it-Yourself Programs to Learn, Discover, and Create at Your Library

Who's a maker? You are!

Join the maker movement! Team up with the Library and learn how to write code, manipulate objects, and cut things with lasers. Makers mix the technology at hand with a do-it-yourself spirit to bring new things to life. Catch a maker program and start creating your own fashion with e-textiles and conductive thread. Make your own musical instrument out of old toys, or old bananas. With Maker Days the possibilities are endless!

Join maker experts from around the community and come learn, discover, and create at your Library this summer.
