According to various sites on the internet, back in the 1960s and 1970s, skateboard enthusiasts started creating DIY mini skateboards for their own amusement. Eventually, skate shops starting selling mini skateboard keychains with logos of popular skateboard brands displayed on them. Now these fingerboards are actually used to perform tricks with your fingers, and there are people who make a living giving tutorials, competing, and recording videos of this amazing skill!

If fingerboarding sounds like a fun time to you, please stop by the library to try it out for yourself during our Fingerboarding Club! Every Thursday from 3pm-4pm in the Makerspace, Jonah, one of our Library Assistants, hosts the club. Fingerboards are available to borrow and there is a mini skate park to practice on. Those participants 14+ may also be able to design and 3D print their own version of a fingerboard or accessory (certification on the 3D printer and signed waivers by a parent or guardian for those ages 14-17 are required for 3D printing).
