Join us for this webinar from the comfort of your office or home computer. We will also have a viewing session at CDLC if you prefer to come to our offices. The CDLC viewing will be followed by a brief discussion of what was presented in the webinar.

Makerspaces are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn. In libraries they often have 3D printers, software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies and tools, and more. Forward-thinking libraries are already building their own dedicated makerspaces and developing valuable STEM programming based on the tools and technologies found therein. Learn all about the essential tools and technologies found in makerspaces and how you can host engaging STEM programming using tech such as Raspberry Pis, wearable electronics, virtual reality, and robotics in your library whether you have a dedicated makerspace or not!
