D202: From Zero to Makerspace

11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
Angel Truesdale, Adult Services Specialist, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library
Mike Wozniak, Information Services Manager, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library

Idea Box, the makerspace of Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, officially opened in February 2015. The space features innovative design, lofty brainstorming, fresh programming events, and specialized staff. Utilizing the Charlotte maker community, staff devised a plan to learn as they taught and to embrace the concept of a public makerspace. From 3D models and 3D prints, to laser cuts and vector graphics software, to the more traditional crafts—all are created in Idea Box. Join library staff as they present the successes, lessons learned, staff challenges, and community building efforts of the Idea Box makerspace.
