The 2nd Floor Commercial

There are so many awesome people who visit The 2nd Floor.  One of those awesome people that I’ve been lucky to meet during my time here in Chattanooga is the awesome Zachary Cross.

I asked him if he’d be interested in making a commercial for The 2nd Floor after I saw some of the awesome work he whipped up at one of our MAKEANOOGA TEENS events back in late 2013.

Check out more of Zachary’s video work here

Thanks for the awesome commercial Zachary!

Thank You Wisconsin Winter Web Conference!

575380_584031804990366_921861033_nI am honored to  be presenting with my co-worker Nate Hill at the Wild Wisconsin Winter Web Conference today at 1pm CST.  We’ll be talking about the following:

From Testing to Deployment: Moving Technology from the 4th Floor to the 2nd Floor

New and emerging technologies, trends, and services should and can encompass several areas in your library. Hill transformed a 4th floor storage area into a vibrant beta space, while Hoenke transformed the youth services floor. This tag-team webinar will talk about the informal and formal processes and synergies between the two floors. They’ll discuss high-tech: 3D printing and vinyl cutting as well as low tech: button makers, crafts, and the Awesome Bear.

Follow along the conversation at #WWWC14 on Twitter!
