Attendees will be able to take lessons in DJ scratching, button-making, circuit design as well as watch demonstrations in robotics and virtual reality.

There will be a 3-D printing station on the Central Park paseo, where people can bring two-dimensional creations to life.

At 10:30 a.m., the DJ group the Beat Junkies will perform and give a demonstration. The group opened a Glendale-based DJ school called the Beat Junkie Institute of Sound in 2017.

The event will make use of the library's MakerSpace, a physical area equipped with several machines and tools for the public's creative needs, including sewing and quilting machines, three 3-D printers as well as color-mixing and printing kits.

The space was established in September with funding from the Glendale Library Foundation and a California Library state grant to bring together Glendale's community of "makers."
