[SCLA] CATS, CLASC, and YASD Present: Tween Maker Faire!

Hi All,

CATS, CLASC, and YASD will be running its first ever Maker Faire! This faire will be open to all librarians, but will mainly focus on the tween population.

We are looking for libraries that would be interested in manning a table during the faire to display any technology related items that would be appropriate for tweens. We would also welcome anyone willing to share Makerspace or STEAM programming as well. Our goal is to have librarians come together to network and become familiar with new technologies that they could possibly order for their collection.

Please fill out the Google Form if your library would be interested in having a table at the event to showcase what they offer. The Google Form must be received no later than November 1, 2022.

The deadline to register and/or apply for a table is November 1, 2022.

Please contact Lauren Tellerman, LIBRARYLAUREN1001@GMAIL.COM for questions regarding table reservations and Lauren Strong, LAUREN.STRONG@RIVERHEADLIBRARY.ORG for registration questions
