And there will be quite a few of them at this year’s Makevention, 10am-4pm on Saturday, August 26th,at the Bloomington/Monroe County Convention Center.

Makevention is a free event showcasing the work and imagination of regional and local makers. Here’s a short list of the many awesome makers participating this year:

The Library's Got Things!

Have you heard about Libraries of Things? From cooking appliances to musical instruments—and even to plant seeds and laptops—libraries around the world are lending all kinds of different items beyond traditional collections of books, movies, and music. If people want it, the philosophy seems to be, libraries should lend it. 

We're no exception, of course—Monroe County Public Library has our own awesome collection of "things" for checkout. Borrow these on your next visit.

Create Your Father's Day Video Greeting Card in Level Up

Father's Day is June 18th. Show your Dad how much you care by creating him a personalized greeting card in Level Up's video studios at the Main Library!

Making a video greeting card here is easy and free—and much more fun than scouring the greeting card aisle at the grocery store for a message that fits your dad's unique style. In Level Up, you can choose from our props, find images to add on top of (or behind) your video footage, and even incorporate something you've brought from home into the perfect Father's Day greeting.
