Save the date! The Toledo Lucas County Public Library and their Full STEAM Ahead! Maker Week partners have lots of great programs being offered throughout our Library system during the week of May 1 - 7, but we wanted to send an invite to our special keynote speaker event for Maker Week.
Nicholas Provenzano, aka "The Nerdy Teacher", who will be our keynote speaker at Main Library on the evening of Wednesday, May 3rd. The event is open to the public and we look forward to having area makers, DIYers, students, and STEM/STEAM educators and leaders attend. A reception with light refreshments will precede the presentation in the Library's new Creativity Lab. A book sale and signing will follow the presentation.
