Our Second DTLA Mini Maker Faire was an amazing feat of low-tech, hi-tech, family, friends, and fun! With more than 40 makers and crowds of over 1800 visitors, every corner of our beautiful library was abuzz with STEAM activity. Thank you everyone involved for all your support and passion, and we look forward to seeing everyone next year!

Here are some photos of people and places that made the day great.
