Description:So you have a makerspace - now what? Attendees will hear about some of the changes and challenges the Fayetteville Free Library Fab Lab has experienced throughout the years.

We will explore various opportunities for strengthening and growing your community member use and participation in your makerspace. Attendees will also have the opportunity to brainstorm some locally relevant ideas and possible partnerships to help strengthen and grow your maker programs and makerspaces.
