Join us for a special event in the Library Center concourse where you can build, make and create. Plus -- meet makers and inventors from southwest Missouri. Makers of all types will host booths showcasing their projects, allowing families to experience art, mechanics, technology and more. Many exhibitors will offer hands-on and interactive opportunities to inspire you to become a maker! Families are encouraged to visit the Story Hour Room, where we'll have activity stations so kids can build, play and try their hands at coding. Innovation Fair is co-sponsored by O-STEAM, coordinators of the Ozarks Mini Maker Fair. This event is made possible through a grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation through the Association for Library Services to Children, a division of the American Library Association.
