The Adaptive Services Division of the DC Public Library will host a DIY (Do It Yourself) Fair in the Great Hall. The DIY Fair will be a celebration of creativity for people with and without disabilities.

You can register for the DIY Fair through Eventbrite.

This event is inspired by Maker Faires. Typical exhibits from Maker Faires in other cities include robotics, 3-D printing, open source computers, gaming, crafts and performances. Some of the exhibits that will be on display at this DIY Fair include the first-ever permanent Ablegamers.org Accessibility Arcade @ DC Public Library gaming station, which just opened up in the Adaptive Services Division; an adapted Snap Circuits project with Braille tagging, 3-D printing, robotics and an open-source technology computer display.

Because of the location, electrical outlets will be very hard to come by, so if you have any electronics to display please try to make sure they are battery-powered.  Exhibitors will get a table and two chairs in the Great Hall.

If you have questions about physical access, need handouts in alternate format, or require American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation or other reasonable accommodation to participate, please contact lbph.dcpl@dc.gov or by telephone: 202-727-2142
