ncompassLiveMed.jpgJoin us for the next NCompass Live: “Tech Talk with Michael Sauers: Tinkers, Printers & Makers, A Makerspace in the Library”, on Wednesday, October 30, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.

Interested in creating a Makerspace in your library? This program will discuss what a Makerspace is, how libraries of all types create and share Makerspaces with library customers and the community and feedback from users. Libraries are a much needed and often used third space, which are ideal for community Makerspaces to collaborate and encourage creativity among all users. There will be gadgets, hands-on demos and group discussion on the nuts & bolts necessary for Makerspace in the library as well as what products should be found in successful Makerspaces. Gordon Wyant will share how his library successfully wrote a grant for a 3D printer, and Michael Sauers will demo a range of new gadgets including a Raspberry Pi and LibraryBox.

Presenters: Marcia Dority Baker, University of Nebraska College of Law Library, Lincoln; Michael Sauers, Nebraska Library Commission; Gordon Wyant, Bellevue Public Library.

In this monthly feature of NCompass Live, the NLC’s Technology Innovation Librarian, Michael Sauers, will discuss the tech news of the month and share new and exciting tech for your library. There will also be plenty of time in each episode for you to ask your tech questions. So, bring your questions with you, or send them in ahead of time, and Michael will have your answers.
