Joanna at the Escondido Public Library Maker Faire booth all set up and ready to go!
Viktor and Joanna represented the Escondido Public Library in the first-ever San Diego Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, December 7, 2013. You may ask…”What do libraries have to do with the maker movement?!?” That’s a great question and answering it was a huge part of why we went. Not only was it a great opportunity to promote our cool projects, such as Pop Up Podcast and LibraryYOU, but it was a great reminder to people that libraries in general have been having people “make” (for free!) for decades! Every craft program, how-to demonstration, and workshop that libraries offer to their communities helps those who want to learn how to make, create, tinker, innovate, build, craft, invent, and hack. The beauty of the maker movement is that it encompasses everything from woodworking and origami to robotics and 3D printing and so much more.
