The First Annual Charleston DIY Festival is designed to celebrate the “Do-It-Yourself” philosophy. The Charleston County Public Library is the perfect venue for this event, as one of its core values is to promote lifelong learning. This free festival will occur at the library’s Main Branch on Saturday, May 17, 2014, from 2pm until 5pm, and it will provide the opportunity for local artists, craftspeople, businesses, organizations, musicians, and technology advocates who support creativity and inventiveness to collaborate with the greater Charleston community.
The event will include:
Interactive Booths: Demonstrators will illustrate their activity, business, or craft and sell their goods at instructional tables in the library’s auditorium.
Live Music: Local musicians will play in the auditorium throughout the afternoon.
DIY 4 Youth: There will be DIY crafts for youth in the library’s Young Adult Department.
Lectures: Alongside the booths will be short classes in the library’s meeting rooms.
