Makerspaces

Libraries are leading the way to collaborative and communal spaces.

In a growing number of schools and communities, libraries are being transformed from hushed spaces of stacks to makerspaces and “learning commons.”

In some locations, the only visible change is a table tucked into a corner with a box of electrical circuits, wires and batteries. But robotics labs, 3-D printer stations and group work areas with over-stuffed chairs are becoming more popular. The purpose is to expand opportunities for learning engagement.

What’s available at your library?
