We officially launched the project on Monday 17th June, at Oldham Library & Lifelong Learning Centre (special thanks to Vickie from Oldham Libraries. She did a great job of organising everything including the refreshments featuring some delicious freshly baked muffins!)
The event was hosted by Neil MacInnes, Strategic Lead for Manchester Libraries and President of the Society of Chief Librarians. Our key speakers were:
Brian Ashley from Arts Council England
Kathy Settle from the Libraries Taskforce
Wendy Breakell from Break Into Business
Outside the hall we had demonstrations of 3D printing, and the team explained to passers-by the idea behind the project.
