Help Little Shop of Stories Build out their Bus

As discussed on the google group, our friends at the Little Shop of Stories received a grant from James Patterson to purchase a bus and convert it into some kind of bookmobile.

They've bought a 16-passenger short bus, about 20' long, and now they need to customize it, inside and out. They've reached out to the Decatur Makers community for help with both design and build out. The project is still at an early stage, and we are generating ideas, narrowing down exactly how the bus should look, and we're open to just about anything at this point.

This initial meetup will focus on getting the exterior design finalized. Current ideas include - Putting identifying marks on the bus such as name and logo (good use for our vinyl cutter?)
- Attaching an awning -- one that could roll out and be supported by poles -- for purposes of doing portable storytimes.

Hope to have the exterior basically done by August 29th for the start of the Decatur Book Festival. Later we can work on the interior...

NOTE 1: The space will be getting a new roof starting Wednesday (yay!) and we still don't have a bathroom so plan accordingly if you come. NOTE 2: A group working on the Power Racing Series may be there that night, too.
