More About Us & Maker Faire

We are excited to announce the Chemung County Library District and Corning Community College have joined forces to host the first annual Twin Tiers Mini Maker Faire on March 25th, 2017 at the Arnot Mall in Horseheads, New York.

Maker Faire is a brand known around the globe for its inspirational, family-friendly events.  These events have helped to spark the ever-growing “maker movement”.  Using both community members and outside exhibitors, Maker Faire puts on, what they like to call, “The Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth,” and it certainly lives up to the name. Reaching out to enthusiasts, crafters, educators, and tinkerers alike, Maker Faire aims to inspire creativity in communities throughout the world with Do-It-Yourself projects and educational experiments.

Although this will be our first year as an official Maker Faire affiliate, “making” is something in which the Chemung County Library District does not lack experience.  In 2014, we perceived a need within our community for an innovative program that would inspire its members in new, fun, and creative ways. From this the CCLD Maker Expo was born, drawing over 100 Makers and 3000 attendees from 2014-2016.  As we have transitioned to the status of Mini Maker Faire, this year stands to be our biggest and best year yet.

Our new partner, Corning Community College, earned the number one ranking for Two-Tear Colleges in New York State by BestColleges.com- a nationally-recognized source of college planning information. The college was noted for its high success rate for transfer students, a wide range of degree options, and competitive in- and out-of-state tuition rates.

We are further strengthened by the participation of the Southeast Steuben County Library which serves the City of Corning and the towns of Erwin, Corning, Caton, Lindley, Hornby and Campbell.
