The Vashon MakerSpace and Tool Library will host a conference of regional tool library representatives on September 7th on Vashon Island. There will be morning sessions devoted to introductions and general topics of interest selected by the attendees, a catered lunch, and an afternoon general session centered around the theme of the conference, The Role of Tool Libraries in Emergency Preparedness. A wrap-up session will close out the day.
The conference will take place at the Mukai Farm and Gardens, a historic farm site on Vashon. See this website for more information about the site. Admission is free, thanks to support from the King County CSA. We ask that each tool library invite a maximum of four people to represent their group, in order to keep the meetings modest sized and manageable. Each tool library will receive reimbursement for ferry fares for up to two cars and up to four attendees. There will be a total of forty tickets given out for the event.
To register, please fill out the attached ticket information. Enrollment is restricted to representatives of tool libraries from off-island. Registrations should be in by August 25th. Thanks for participating. If you need more information or would like to change your enrollment arrangements, give me a call at 206-265-9929.
