The Bluebonnet Regional Branch Innovation Space has various tools you can use to create something awesome! The Space features audio/visual (A/V) equipment like a GoPro, Sennheiser microphones, a Yamaha mixer, green screens, instrument cables and XLR cables available for patron use. If you want to learn how to use them on your own, join other adults and teens ages 12 and up at the Library for a tutorial. Another tool is the 3D printer, which can be used by patrons to print things like an iPhone case, earrings, toys and more. To learn how, adults and teens ages 12 and up can attend an informative training course. Registration is required for all sessions. To register, visit the online events calendar at www.ebrpl.com. For more information, call (225) 763-2250. Once you’ve completed the class, you’ll be able to reserve the room on your own. Here’s the class schedule:
• 3D Printer Class
10:30 a.m. Saturday, December 22

Socks are the most requested and least donated article of clothing in homeless shelters. In an effort to help make this item available for those in need, the East Baton Rouge Parish Library’s Children’s Services Department will once again join with Baton Rouge Parents magazine’s 14th Annual Sock It to Me Drive to collect socks that will be distributed to area homeless shelters, the East Baton Rouge Council on Aging and Bethany House, which is a facility for cancer patients at the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center. The drive will last through Friday, November 30.
This year, we would like to beat the 2017 Drive’s totals which were 1,083 pairs of socks contributed by Children’s Services to Baton Rouge Parents magazine’s grand total of 9,587 pairs! Our goal is to collect at least 2,500 pairs and with your help, we will! Simply drop new, unworn socks in the collection box that will be in the Children’s Room at each Library location. For more information, call the Children’s Department at (225) 231-3760.
All library branches will be closed this Sunday, November 11th, in observance of Veterans Day. All branches will reopen on Monday for regular hours. We thank all veterans for their service.
