Davis Public Library

Project Reports

  • Demo — No news.
  • Installfests — The last IF was on July 19th. There were a few RSVPs, a number of onlookers, and there was talk of making "themed workshops". Each IF would have a different topic. This will require additional leadership (someone to pick topics, do background research, etc.) Discussion is being done on the Installfest page of DavisWiki.org. Volunteers welcome! No future IF has been scheduled, yet.
  • LERT — No news.
  • Library — No news.
