When? May 18, 2017 from 9:00am-3:00pm

Where? EXPO HALL, Plant City, FL Strawberry Festival Fairgrounds

We are in our third year of presenting Library MakerFest, a day-long exhibit of all things maker where you can join your library colleagues and vendors to learn more about makerspaces or new maker projects in libraries. We’ve upgraded to the larger Expo Hall just across the street from the previous venue. Come collaborate, educate, and explore with us.

The day will include booths staffed by libraries featuring their latest and greatest maker activities and vendors showing off their products to update or build your makerspace.

This year we are premiering Maker’s Row, a designated area to get your hands dirty, make, and take a creation home with you.
