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.
