Maker Camp

Maker_Camp_logoThe Maker movement is a renaissance of ingenuity and innovation, encouraging the individual as creator rather than consumer. Maker Camps at the Okefenokee Regional Library System (OKRLS) are a series of workshops for kids and adults that explore different skills through hands-on projects. The camps are for anyone who is interested in DIY, making, creating, crafting, hacking, tinkering, and learning. Camps run at all five OKRLS branches: Ware, Pierce, Appling, Bacon, and Clinch. The summer of 2016 marked the first OKRLS Maker Camp.

Get a Library Card

It’s easy!

1. Get immediate access to all digital resources OKRLS offers by completing this online application.

2.  If you’d like full access to our books and other materials, complete the online application and then visit your local library. Be sure to bring your driver’s license or other photo ID with you.

3.  If your driver’s license or photo ID doesn’t have your current address on it, you’ll also need to bring something official, like a pre-printed check or utility bill, that does show your name and current address.

4.  Verify your application with library staff and be sure to sign the bottom of the application.

You’ll get your library card and you can check out library materials right away. Find your closest OKRLS library here!
