Learn more and apply before the January 18 deadline. This is going to be fun!

The Future is Now: Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality in Public Libraries
Wednesday, January 23, 2019 / 12:00 pm Pacific / 60 minutes
Libraries have long been at the forefront of providing community access to new technologies. Virtual, augmented, and mixed reality (VR/AR/MR) are now finding a place in library programming and services, engaging with communities in truly innovative ways. Two Maryland libraries are building their programming with straightforward approaches to community discovery and local partnerships. Join us to hear creative ideas for how to get started using VR/AR/MR at your library, as well as practical tips about applications, equipment and potential uses to meet your community's needs.

Reduce Waste, Build Community: Hosting Repair Events at Your Library
Wednesday, February 13, 2019 / 12:00 pm Pacific / 60 minutes
Libraries around the world are hosting repair events, inviting people to bring damaged household items and clothing to be repaired instead of throwing them away. Repair events can help your library reach diverse communities, teach and maintain valuable repair skills, and engage with skilled volunteers and invested community partners. Help your patrons save money on electronic, mechanical or sewing repairs and divert waste from the landfill with fix-it fairs, repair cafes and U-fix-it clinics. Join us for this webinar to learn everything you need to know about hosting a repair event, from finding partners to recruiting fixers, and from getting management approval to effectively getting the word out.
