Maker Programmin​g on the Library Floor, Part I Design It

Thursday, December 19, 2013 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Design It * Make It * Share It  is a Library Services and Technology Act-funded project run by the Free Library of Philadelphia, focused on youth maker programming in public library branches. In this webinar, Programming Specialists K-Fai Steele and Barbara Tait will give an overview of the entire project, then dive into the "Design It" aspect: how to set up your library for success with maker programming on the floor of the library. We'll cover nontraditional staffing models (artists, college students, and near-peer mentors), best practices for hiring and managing mentors, and will share ideas and resources for low-cost tools and supplies.
This project is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Corbett, Governor
