Why does it matter that we make things ourselves when we can easily let other people do it for us? Dale Dougherty, CEO of Maker Media (Make Magazine and Maker Faire), co-founder of O’Reilly Media, and the man who coined the phrase "Web 2.0," will tell stories about why people make and how people connect through the common desire to create things.

What are First Fridays?
Debuting in January 2011 in celebration of the Library's centennial year, the ongoing "First Fridays" series presents different narratives, ideas and presentations that an audience might otherwise not consider or experience. First Fridays are for adults and high school students.

The Venue:
The Library's Main Reading Room is transformed into a beautiful venue for First Friday events. Built in 1966, the Library is nestled among the redwoods in an award-winning building and reflects the diverse intellectual interests of the community.

The Experience:
Programs typically last 90 minutes (includes Q&A). First Fridays feature a wine reception before and after our program. Patrons enjoy the intimate atmosphere and ability to meet our presenters. Attendance ranges between 115 and 260 people per event.

Thank you to the Mill Valley Library Foundation and the Friends for their generous support of Library programs and services. Click here to support Library events.
