Library Seeks Exhibitors to Participate in 3rd Annual Stark Mini Maker Faire®

March 23, 2018 (Canton, Ohio) – Stark Library is hosting the third annual Stark Mini Maker Faire on Friday, May 4 from 2:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the Main Library. The Library is currently looking for individuals and organizations that identify as makers and wish to participate in this one-of-a-kind event.

Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an award winning, family friendly event, celebrating technology, education, science, arts, crafts, engineering, food, sustainability, and more. A maker is anyone who is a tech enthusiast, crafter, tinkerer, hobbyist, engineer, author, or artist.

Stark Mini Maker Faire will be part of First Friday in the Canton Arts District and will be appropriate for all ages. Exhibitors can participate in the event for free and are asked to showcase unique maker-type activities and share them with the public. Exhibitors will demo their work for event attendees as they visit each station or instruct others on what they do. The event is not designed for selling goods or services.

Those who are interested in being an exhibitor at Stark Mini Maker Faire can fill out the online form at StarkLibrary.org/MakerFaire or email contactus@starklibrary.org by April 20. Stark Mini Maker Faire is independently organized and operated under license from Maker Media, Inc.



One of the 9 largest library systems in Ohio – and the county’s oldest library – Stark Library serves the community through 10 locations, six mobile libraries, and a 24/7 digital branch.


A 2009 winner of the prestigious National Medal for library service, the Library serves over 140,000 active cardholders, annually circulating 3.85 million items from its 1.5 million item collection and providing access to an additional 66 million items from lending networks throughout Ohio. Each year the library presents more than 9,000 programs for 175,000 attendees and provides 240,000 computer sessions on the publicly available computers found in each branch.

Today, as it reimagines itself as The Smart Store, where everything is free®, the Library is emerging as a national thought-leader with innovations such as its “no overdue fines” policy, the BikeSmart bike sharing network, and the Start Smart School Partnership.
