This Saturday, Brooklyn Public Library was honored to be one of the representatives of the Hive NYC at the Maker Faire!

Held at the New York Hall of Science, the Maker Faire is a fun, creative 2 day event billed as "the world's largest DIY festival."

Five interns attended and showcased their amazing projects! Johnna, Peter and Roger from the Central Youth Services division demonstrated the two films they worked on during the school year and summer - "Why We Broke Up" (inspired by the upcoming young adult novel by Daniel Handler and Maira Kalman) and "I Need My Library," a short film that won 2nd runner up in the American Library Association's contest.

Anastasiya and Kristi from the Brooklyn Collection showed photographs from their summer project titled "Then and Now." Kristi and Anastasiya took photographs that replicated photos in our collection of branches and street scenes from decades ago. Their photos show how the communities, buildings and people have changed throughout the years.

A huge thank you to the interns who not only represented Brooklyn Public Library but also represented the Hive NYC network! See a photo of the interns and Sheila, the coordinator of young adult services, below:

Closing Summer Party for the MIPs

Yesterday was the closing party in celebration of the summer interns. The interns talked about their experiences working in their divisions and the projects that they worked on over the summer, while the mentors talked about the great work the interns did.

It was sad to see them go, but they will all go on to other great opportunities! If you think you have what it takes to be a Multicultural Intern at Brooklyn Public Library, check out our webpage and fill out an application! We are recruiting for the third year of the program from now through October!
