Elementary parents are invited to an informational meeting for the Dare to Dream: Reimagining Our Elementary Libraries initiative on March 21 at 7 p.m. in their school library and will be hosted by the principal and school librarian. This event will be an opportunity for parents to learn more about makerspaces and and how they can become involved in the development of a makerspace in their school library.
We are also pleased to announce our partnership with the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh--a national leader in maker space design--to help us with this project.
This library initiative is made possible due to the generous initial gift of $175,000 from Mt. Lebanon alumni and parents David and Noelle Conover to help establish a maker-centered learning space in each library to be named Matt's Maker Space after their son Matt, who lost a courageous battle with cancer in 2002. The gift will be disbursed over a 3 year period with each school receiving $8500 each year.
We hope you can join us to reimagine our elementary libraries as 21st Century learning centers.
