Makerspace And More Offered Soon At Bell Memorial Public Library
MENTONE — Bell Memorial Public Library released its announcements for the week of Jan. 6-10.
The library is creating space for its “Makerspace!” Think of a Makerspace as a spot inside the library for making, sharing, learning and exploring. Patrons have the potential to use things like a high-quality laser printer or maybe even a 3D printer, a sewing machine, VHS to DVD converter, a Cricut machine, even quality papers and colored pencils. Patrons may have opportunities to make their own greeting cards, do some easy sewing, cut out a particular shape or graphic, or program basics robotics?
Our plan is to create the “Makerspace” in our Young Adult room after the Children’s Department remodeling project is complete. If you need to know more about “Makerspaces” ask library staff or do an Internet search. You’ll see the amazing potential you will have here at your own Library!

The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting to fill hundreds of thousands of temporary positions across the country to assist with the 2020 Census count. Jobs for the 2020 Census offer competitive wages that are paid weekly. Authorized expenses, such as mileage, are reimbursed for employees doing fieldwork. Census results are used to determine your representation in Congress, and they help inform how billions of dollars are distributed for hospitals, schools, roads, and more. Help ensure that everyone in your community is counted in the 2020 Census. Temporary positions for the 2020 Census feature flexible hours—a perfect fit if you are looking to earn extra money, even if you already have other commitments. Every 10 years since 1790, the United States has undertaken the momentous task of counting its population. This is your chance to play a role.
