Earlier this year the library unveiled the Dabble Box, a “do-it-yourself” multi-purpose programming space where customers can explore technology, arts, and crafts. It’s been such a wild success that we wanted to take it to the streets . . . Eau Claire Street, that is!
Community members are invited to “Play — Make — Share” at an upcoming maker fest hosted by the library. “Dabble Day: A Chippewa Valley Maker Fest” will be held from 2 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, August 15. A partial closure of Eau Claire Street will allow space to explore the Chippewa Valley Technical College’s Mobile Manufacturing Lab and a variety of maker stations with demonstrations and make-and-take activities will be provided by the Dabble Box and several other community partners.
To really round it out and add that festival atmosphere, music will be played in the outdoor area and two food trucks will be selling all those fried foods you may have missed at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair.
Come to play, come to make, come to explore, just make sure to come!
