Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared Thursday, September 15th as Power Up at Your Library Day to encourage libraries to promote technology, innovation, and creativity. We are quite happy to participate and have planned a couple of events around this day. First is "Chain Reactions," which is a drop-in program from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Innovation Lab. Participants will be able to help construct a Rube-Goldberg machine and enjoy the fun and interesting results. Second is the Jocelyn H. Lee Digital Media Lab Open House from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. The public will be able to take a close look at this new service and space, which will offer opportunities to create, edit, and convert digital video, images, and audio/music. An official open date for the Lab is planned for October at a date yet to be determined. We hope you will join us for both of these "Powered Up" events!
