Makerspace: Is it Right for Your Library? - Free Webinar, February 26, 2014

Makerspace: Is it Right for Your Library?
Wednesday, February 26th -- 2:00pm - 3:00pm Eastern Time
Register:  http://goo.gl/oP7BYT

Public and academic libraries across the country are forming makerspaces inside their libraries to provide patrons with the tools needed to innovate and create. In an online panel facilitated by Charlie Bennett (Georgia Institute of Technology), learn how these spaces are being developed in Georgia libraries and discover the types of resources and services they provide. You may even find that you already offer a makerspace environment! Panelists include representatives from three Georgia libraries that already operate a makerspace: Michael Holt (Valdosta State University), Marlan Brinkley (Atlanta-Fulton Public Library, Sandy Springs Branch), and Andaiye Reeves (Atlanta-Fulton Public Library, Central Branch).

Can't make it to the live show? That's okay. The session will be recorded and available on the Carterette Series Webinars site for later viewing.
