We caught this little bit of interesting news while waiting for a coffee at a SoDo neighborhood coffee shotp a couple of days ago. ⤵️ No doubt it caught our eye because of the cute little R2-D2 droid starring in the ad.
Ever wanted to build your own droid or wonder about the process of making droids? Come Meet the Makers at a panel discussion with droid builders and take a photo with R2 to commemorate the evening.
Honestly we didn’t even know these meetups happened at the library but it’s certainly good to know moving forward. Hosted by the Orlando Melrose Makers, the group consists of local “makers” who offer a variety of events for folks who are interested in learning and making new things together. Don’t know about anyone else but we’re always up for learning and making things! And the upcoming “Meet the Maker: An Evening with R2” on Tuesday the 22nd sounds like it’s perfectly aligned with the group’s motto.
NOTE: You do not need an OCLS card or a Melrose Center membership to attend.

Have you ever attended a community event like this at any of the Central Florida libraries? If so, we’d love to hear about it.
