This presentation is relevant for all parents, educators, and citizens in the 21st century.

The world is changing rapidly, and the work of parents and educators grows increasingly challenging, stressful, and confusing. This presentation is relevant for all parents, educators, and citizens in the 21st century. Dr. Kershner will address childhood development, literacy, technology, mindfulness, and education policy, with an emphasis on how to foster health and happiness for ourselves and our children in an increasingly complex world.

About the branch

With the closing of Main Library in January 2017 for a major renovation, the MakerLab is temporarily located at Northgate Mall. The lab is open whenever there is a program scheduled.

Regularly-scheduled Open MakerDays allow for the community to explore the many tools the lab has to offer, including 3D printing, Cubelets, BeeBots, watercolor bot, and so much more. During MakerDays, patrons may bring in digital files to print on the 3D printer.
