Prince George, B.C. – Creative juices are flowing at the Prince George Public Library’s Bob Harkins Branch today.

Kids can use the MakerMobile until 4:30 p.m. today. It will return to the library from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, July 22nd.

“MakerMobile programs encourage imagination and creativity by engaging young people in hands-on projects and workshops exploring art, crafts, engineering and technology,” says communications coordinator Amy Dhanjal.

She says there’s also something new for older kids to check out as beginning today they will be able to use a new iMac computer in the teen section.

The computer allows users to make webtoons, websites, edit videos and photos and mix audio.

Those wanting to use the computer can check in at the Children’s and Teens Reference Desk.

Funding for the iMac was provided by the New Gold Blackwater Project.
