Cindy Wall and Lynn Pawloski, two traditionally educated, but not traditionally centered children's librarians introduce maker-based programming to librarians of all experience levels and tech-savviness. Maker, today's DIY, encourages collaboration among participants regardless of library programming budget or designated Makerspace availability. The Maker Movement encompasses self-production of technology, crafts and more. In addition to a multitude of programming ideas, attendees will share a step-by-step, hands-on experience. Cindy and Lynn are co-authors of the upcoming The Maker Cookbook: Recipes for Youth Library Programs published by Libraries Unlimited.

Learning Outcomes 

By the end of the webinar, librarians will experience a surge in self-confidence in their ability to adapt the Maker Movement to programming in their own library. They will participate in one complete Maker library program for children and be given suggestions for additional future programs.
