Sharing the journey….

articleMegan and I were invited to present our introduction of ‘MakerSpaces’ into our library at SLAQ Creating Future Libraries Conference, October 2014. Our ideas, structure and space was well received with many people taking the time to ask questions afterwards. Since then we have prepared a Webinar for ASLA which was to go to air last month but with some technical difficulties was unable to, but hopefully it will happen soon. I have attached the Powerpoint which we will be using.
