How to use a library (school or public) to build a culture of maker-centered learning in your classroom or educational institution. Using books for learners of all ages, participants will be challenged to design prompts meant to support literacy skills and hands-on, maker-based learning opportunities. Learn about a library with a fully developed and well-integrated maker program, and brainstorm strategies to take home, and try with your own group of learners.
