Sno-Isle Libraries offers special TEDxLIVE event
Over a thousand attendees will spend at least $6,000 to attend the upcoming TED2016 DREAM Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. But Sno-Isle Libraries will livestream the second day of the conference free of charge at its Coupeville and Darrington libraries.
The events will take place Tuesday, Feb. 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Coupeville Library, 788 NW Alexander St., and Darrington Library, 1005 Cascade St.
The TED2016 conference will be dedicated to the greatest dreams humanity is capable of dreaming. The 19 speakers featured at the library events will range from a cardiologist to a cartoonist, a hip-hop artist to a “stranger enthusiast.” The list of speakers and times of their presentations are available online at sno-isle.org/tedx/live.
Attendees are asked to register online to attend the Coupeville Library event. They can register for Darrington Library by emailing the library manager at ABryson@sno-isle.org.
The library district is calling the events TEDxCoupevilleLibraryLive and TEDxDarringtonLibraryLive. Some of the talks shown may not be made available to view later online. Library attendees and staff will be given time during the event to discuss ideas that surface from the talks.
