The Hillsdale Library is celebrating NJ Makers Day on Saturday, March 19. Be part of the showcase of invention, creativity and craft. Submissions are being sought from artists, crafters, inventors, tinkerers, and other creative folk. Prizes will be awarded in six categories: best reuse of materials, best electric thing, best thing that can be worn, best moving thing, best thing that makes sound, and surprise us. The Library also seeks makers that wish to share their story with the general public. Entry forms are available at the library and at myhillsdalelibrary.org.
