Calling all Makers What’s a maker? You are… if you’re a tech enthusiast, crafter, tinkerer, hobbyist, engineer, author, or artist!

Is your preferred medium paint, pixels, or dirt? Is your creative space a kitchen, garage, or studio? This spring at Stark County District Library we’re celebrating everyone who likes to roll up their sleeves and get their hands a little dirty. If you thought the library was only for bookworms and card catalogs, guess again… check out these events, activities, and gadgets that will spark your imagination. Look for the Maker Symbol  throughout this issue to discover even more maker resources and DIY opportunities.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar for our second annual Stark Mini Maker Faire on May 5. See page 5 for details. ®
