NJ Makers Day 2019: Call for Volunteers to Lead Programs
On Sunday, March 23rd, 2019, makers from across New Jersey will be participating in the 5th annual NJ Makers Day to celebrate and share maker culture. The Oradell Free Public Library consistently has one of the largest events in the state.
Currently, we are in the process of recruiting volunteers to lead programs. If you have a skill, hobby, interest, or talent you can share with the public, we would like to work with you.
NJ Makers Day is a community-wide event that aims to bring everyone together by sharing skills and talents. Perfect is not required to lead a station, just an enthusiasm to explore your interests with others!
