This live online class will be a chance to discuss the concept of Creative Spaces or Maker Spaces in your library. Topics to be covered include:
Is this just a new fad?
- Do you need to jump onto this right now?
- What exactly is a Creative Space and how would I make it work at my library?
- What are the Pros and Cons that you will have to deal with?
Come join this highly interactive session for a chance to ask questions and get some ideas for how you can make this work for your library.
This webinar will be delivered via SEFLIN Connect. Log-in information will be emailed approximately one week before the course.
