Library Makerspace Workshop at NWLS
Libraries are places of community engagement. Recently many libraries have begun to develop spaces for activities that both teach and empower people of all ages. The learning in these spaces varies from bicycle repair to STEM education (science, technology, engineering, math). The maker movement in libraries is about providing opportunity for people to access the resources for learning new skills.
Making It @ Your Library at 10:00 on September 19 at NWLS will explore advantages and challenges of the library makerspace movement and some of the ideas and practices that might work for your community. Please register by September 9 by contacting Linda Stobbe.
