Innovation at the Library
The Library's fabulous Americorps VISTA volunteers Candace Blas and Paul Baker have made tremendous progress this year. VISTA Paul Baker developed the Innovation Lab, which offers business startup and job-finding skills workshops and twice monthly Maker Nights. The Loussac was also the site of Anchorage's first Maker Faire, hosted in partnership with the Anchorage Economic Development Corporation.
VISTA Candace Blas has made headlines this year with her innovative approach to teen programs, such as Last Thursday art shows and the Teen Writing Society. She finishes this week and her replacement will export the Teen Underground concept to the neighborhood libraries.
