Twice a month, staff from the Labs at DC Public Library take over the Twittersphere to answer your questions about makerspaces, video and audio production, and personal digital archiving in the library. You can prepare by reading up on the Labs and their offerings here, or send us photos of the awesome things you've made and learned in one of our spaces.
