Building a Better Book
Join Library staff in building a better book! The Build a Better Book program, affiliated with CU Boulder and supported by the National Science Foundation, works with libraries to engage participants in the design and fabrication of inclusive media, including picture books, games, and graphics. These accessible products are designed for learners with visual impairments and other physical and learning disabilities. Designs can be low-tech or high-tech, using materials such as craft supplies, 3D printers, vinyl cutters, and more. Commenting, Technology Librarian Jenni Burke said: “We are very excited to partner with CU Boulder to bring this innovative program to our patrons. It’s an incredible opportunity to apply some of our Makerspace supplies and equipment to a meaningful product for our community.” The series will be held every Saturday, 10:00 am to 12 pm, from February 1 to March 14.
The Build a Better Book program is open to youth, grades 6-12. Space is limited and an application to participate is required. Applications will be accepted December 1-21.
