Maker Monday at Rust Library: Take a trip down memory lane and preserve those cherished moments at the same time using our digitization equipment! This mom converted her VHS tapes from 20 years ago of her son's high school basketball games and family dog as a holiday present. She commented that she enjoyed reliving the times and was glad to be able to digitize them for free at the library. Find out more about our makerspace equipment at library.loudoun.gov/makerspace.

The entries for the 6th annual Great Ashburn Gingerbread Competition are in and voting is open through Saturday, December 16, but we don't know how anyone is going to be able to pick their favorites. We received entries in the Kids (ages 7 and younger), Youth (ages 8-12), and Adult (ages 18+) categories. These gingerbread houses are even more amazing in person so we encourage everyone to stop by the Children's Department to see them up close.

Maker Monday at Rust Library: Local bassist Kevin made these hats to promote his bluegrass band, The Plate Scrapers, using the heat press. He was excited to learn that he could design his own custom tags, shirts, and other promo materials instead of paying someone else to produce them, and can't wait to bring his other ideas to life using our technology.
