“NJ Makers Day is a celebration of maker culture across New Jersey. This all-ages event connects individuals with libraries, schools, businesses, and independent makerspaces that support making, tinkering, crafting, manufacturing, and STEM-based learning.”

The Upper Saddle River Library is participating in the 2017 NJ Maker’s Day on Saturday, March 25th from 1-4 pm. Last year 40,000 individual attendees participated all across New Jersey through libraries, museums and schools. This year, we are looking for help from YOU! Do you have an interesting skill that you want to show off in a hands-on demonstration? Or just looking to have fun and engage with your community? We’re welcoming all volunteers who are willing to participate. Please contact us by January 20th to get making and sharing in the library!
