Join us for the first-ever Virtual Baton Rouge Mini Maker Faire from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, October 17, with video production and live streaming services provided by Stuart Poulton. Now in its seventh year, the annual event is FREE, family-friendly, and jammed-packed with cool creative projects. We’ll stream the event to YouTube Live where attendees can join the fun … and don’t worry, it won’t all be sitting in front of a computer! Enjoy crafts, tech, art and more, plus special guests to entertain you in the comfort of your home. We encourage you to get creative and make along with us by taking recycled materials challenges, and assembling Grab-N-Go craft kits. These kits are FREE and available at any of our 14 Library locations. With all of you tuning in at home, we’ll make this a great time for everyone!
