Free Online Mini Conference – Makerspaces

Date: Wednesday, October 11, 2017
Time: 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Place: Online at
Cost: Free

You can attend the (free!) mini-conference live or you can watch the recordings at any time afterwards. When you register, we’ll also send you a bonus “Library Makerspaces” Resource Pack, and you’ll receive an exclusive invitation to a 90-minute pre-conference event hosted by the team from the Fayetteville Free Library: “STEAM and Making at the FFL.” Plus, we’ll be using so that you can receive digital credentials for attending and participating!

This mini-conference on libraries and makerspaces is being organized in partnership with Heather Moorefield-Lang, who will serve as moderator for the opening panel and as the closing keynote speaker: “There has been a lot of talk about makerspaces in libraries over the past four years. If you are unsure what makerspaces are, think of them as creative locations for tinkering, collaborating, problem solving, and creating in a library or educational space. No matter how many maker learning spaces you may visit, you will quickly notice no two are the same. Each librarian and makerspace delivers their own brand of service to their individual community. Attendees will investigate how librarians with makerspaces can create new partnerships and collaborative efforts in and with their communities, offering further services and methods to meet patron needs.”

Registered attendees can then also view their choice of 30-minute sessions on a variety of topics, ranging from building spaces, using volunteers in makerspaces, and hosting maker events, all of which will be recorded and available afterwards.

Registration will give you access to the live event and to the event recordings. Sign up at the link above.
