Do you want to create a Makerspace?

An invitation for libraries to get more involved in makerspaces.  Check out this blog post at PC Sweeney's Blog.

What I love is the observation that libraries are already involved in makerspace activities.  Every time we have a class where we teach teenagers to make duct tape wallets, let the kids play with Legos, or have the adults doing hands-on crafts, cooking, or tech classes ... that's a makerspace.  They're learning to create and the library is facilitating the process.  That's all it is.  A $2 million space with an enormous annual budget is great, but it starts with people getting together to create.  We can do that ... we already are.
