Looking for Presenters: CLASC Annual Membership Meeting

Has your library or department embraced the Makerspace movement in a big way? If so, would you be willing to share your success stories with the CLASC membership?

CLASC is seeking librarians willing to do a brief presentation (5-10 minutes max) on the great makerspace work your library or department is doing. If you have a dedicated Makerspace, that's GREAT, but we'd love to hear from libraries who are rocking this trend even without a fixed space. You'd be among 1 or 2 other librarians sharing your stories at CLASC's Annual Membership Meeting on Tuesday, November 19th, 6:30 pm at Patchogue/Medford Library.

If you would be interested, email Marybeth Kozikowski as soon as possible at

Looking forward to hearing from you and about the great work your library is doing!
