About the Summit

From creating new business opportunities to spurring community revitalization and improving our schools, the Maker Movement can change an economic landscape - and Connecticut is poised to take advantage this phenomenon. The New England Maker Summit: Why Making Matters will demonstrate how by spotlighting success stories and providing guidelines for implementing and enhancing Making opportunities in Connecticut. 


Should you go? Is it for librarians?

CLC has partnered with the New England Maker Summit to bring discounted admission to our members. We are excited about this event and feel that Connecticut libraries should be represented and will benefit. You should go if ...

  • You are interested in Making and its benefits to your community/school/district/world.
  • You welcome the opportunity to interact with and hear perspectives about making from professionals outside the library/school environment.
  • You'd like to focus your library's Making efforts to be more relevant to your community/school/district and on par with important trends.
  • You'd like to hear high profile speakers from the Maker movement - including Maker Media founder Dale Dougherty - right here in CT for a very reasonable price.
