Big Ideas, Small Budgets

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Learn about making big ideas happen on a small budget. The presenters will discuss how they created a permanent makerspace, mobile maker carts and kits, and “making” programming for all ages with a small budget. They will also provide practical pointers to library staff looking to make the most of their budget. Participants will have a chance to engage with small-budget making activities, as well as workshop their own ideas and challenges, so bring a service, program, or collection puzzle to share! There will also be time for Q&A.
