The library’s Maker Camp is just the thing for you!
With help from Google and MAKE Magazine, we will be transforming the Educational Park Branch into a makerspace. Every Monday through Thursday from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm, the library will virtually host some of the most interesting professional creators behind the scenes of game design, movies, and music. On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:00 pm -1:00 pm, they’ll have the opportunity to create their own maker projects.
Each week will have a different theme, with speakers and projects that will build upon it.
Week 1—Makers in Motion (July 7-11, 2014)
Week 2 —Art and Design (July 14-18, 2014)
Week 3—Fun & Games (July 21-25, 2014)
Week 4—Science & Technology (July 28-August 1, 2014)
Week 5—DIY Music (August 4-8, 2014)
Week 6—Make: Believe (August 11-15, 2014)
