Summer may be conference season, but we have one more conference coming up in the fall that we want to make sure is on your calendar. The Library 2.017: Makerspaces web conference will be held from noon to 3 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on Wednesday, October 11.

Join the San Jose State University School of Information and our collaborators for this inspiring conversation about makerspaces in libraries. You’ll be sure to get some new ideas and come away energized. The conference is free to attend. Register now!

Abstract: Makerspaces are popping up at libraries more and more these days. The creative outlets for tinkering, collaborating, problem solving, and learning provide a new dynamic for library services. Just like the individual projects made, no two library makerspaces are the same. During this free web conference, attendees will investigate how library makerspaces can foster community partnerships and provide a space for patrons to innovate through hands-on learning.
