Makerspaces…the new frontier

maker space2

For the past few years, there has been a lot of buzz around makerspaces in the library. Makerspaces provide an area for students and teachers to think, learn, and create in a variety of areas.

Deciding to implement a makerspace in your library is one thing. It’s another thing to actually plan it out and do it. There are a lot of things to consider when deciding on the right kinds of makerspaces for your library. Location, budget, tools, projects, resources, time, and much more.

This summer I’m taking an online Makerspace workshop through Library Journal/School Library Journal to help prepare me to start a makerspace here in the Tompkins Library. I’ve also found some really great information in this FREE Makerspace Playbook.

What kinds of makerspaces would you like to see in the Tompkins Library? [formidable id=8]
