This evening only, at the Orlando Public Library, meet Makey, the Orlando Maker Faire Mascot. Makey will be here this evening, Wednesday, September 4, from 5 pm – 7 pm. With an Orange County Library System or Melrose Card in good standing, you can enter a drawing for tickets for free entry to the Orlando Maker Faire at the Orlando Science Center. The Orlando Maker Faire will be held on Saturday, September 13 and Sunday, September 14 at the Orlando Science Center.
This past Friday we had an opportunity to participate in a series of interviews on My Hometown with Jim Turner – 1520 WBZW. The show was conducted live at the library’s North Orange Branch. Ormilla Vengersammy, Melrose Center’s Department Head, joined other library staff members to talk about many of the library’s popular services. It was a neat experience seeing how library patrons engaged and interacted with those participating in the interview.
