watching the Super happy maker hour - a great start to the day
 
The Colorado State Library is going to be showcasing a new maker every month from January until June, and you can ask questions, learn about their projects, and get ideas for inspiring and implementing maker activities in your library. We’ll have something for everyone, so no need to be an expert on any given topic. Just come interested and eager to ask questions!

January’s featured maker will be Jesse Perez from the Denver Public Library who will be talking about Ardunio and other microcontrollers
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Colorado State Library. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Golden Valley Library building project
I really like the way that Hennepin County Library shares their stories on Flickr.  This set shows a library renovation.   It is nice to see the changes, but also sharing the photographs through the project helps to explain why the library is closed.
