CPL Hack Day II: Electric Boogaloo, originally scheduled for Saturday, June 25, 2011, from 1:00-5:00PM, has been Canceled.

CPL Hack Day is a semi-annual open house for hobbyists at Canton Public Library. A Hack Day consists of casual demonstrations (tables/chairs provided by the library) and presentations of local hackers' work. Local hackers are invited to show off their projects, network with others, and/or learn something new. Hackers of all types are encouraged to participate; software developers, maker/builders, crafters, lifehackers, and other hobbyists.

Additional discussion and planning of the events is coordinated on the Discussion Page.
