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:
