Drupal is a Content Management System; that if properly deployed can save time and energy in building interactive and powerful websites. Learn everything from setting up a server, what modules to set up and basic introduction on how Drupal works. You will also be able to play on your own Drupal Server (https://simplytest.me/).

Attendees will be able to build a quick and beautiful website. This would be a stepping block to either replacing your library's web page (at a very low cost) or allow users to spin up a basic website for promotion of a single event or space in the library.
