Road Trip of Professional Development

Registration is open!

Making in Michigan Libraries hits the road from May – August 2016, visiting ten Michigan communities  (and our own Ann Arbor) to talk with participants about building maker momentum in their libraries, schools, troops, organizations, and neighborhoods. Educators, librarians, scouting troop leaders, 4-H leaders, Boys and Girls Club mentors, and others wishing to build or expand their maker programming are welcome to attend.

All workshops are free, though lunch is on your own. To learn more about each location’s customized agenda, please scroll down and click “REGISTER HERE.”
