(45) The Birth of Cool: How Kahuku Public and School Library is Leading the Way For Makerspaces and STEAM Programming in the Hawaii State Public Library System LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

Makerspaces are ubiquitous in libraries throughout the continental U.S. and are popping up in both school and academic libraries in Hawaiʻi. The Kahuku Public and School Library is in the midst of creating a pilot Makerspace for the Hawaii State Public Library System. Hear about our journey into unknown territory as we begin to change the identity of our small, rural library into a thriving, co-laboratory to meet the needs of our community. We'll share how this project began and its process, how we are developing partnerships, avoiding potential pitfalls, and promoting our new resources and services to our patrons.
