Libraries (both the physical and the virtual) have developed new tools and new ways to bring the public into their doors. By adding 3D printers, embracing the eBook world, and teaching kids by providing science and coding classes, libraries have come a long way! We’ll spend some time discussing libraries of today, the teaching element of libraries… and how fun can be found. Not to mention, a few words about how Doctor Who has encouraged libraries and reading over the years; as the Doctor once said, “You want weapons? We’re in a library! Books! Best weapons in the world! This room’s the greatest arsenal we could have.” This panel will be especially relevant to our younger visitors
