CJ Lynce, TechCentral Manager, Cleveland Public Library

This jammed-packed session shares many ideas and tools you can use to introduce maker services to your library, both virtual and physical, on any sized budget. Learn how TechCentral at CPL is “making makers” from the ground up by incorporating a variety of creative and hands-on services aimed at everyone from children to retirees. Discover ideas for low- or no-cost maker programs such as Create Your Own Font, Make a Tough Wallet Out of a Mail Envelope, and Learn to Code. Also, find out what it took to create MakerSpace at TechCentral, featuring a laser engraver, vinyl cutter, 3D printer, photo/ video/music production, and how your library can create a dedicated “make” space that fits community demands and funding resources.
