Makerspaces in Your Library?

makerspacesheadHave you heard the latest buzz about makerspaces,  which are  library spaces to create, build, and craft? I was happy to see it highlighted front and center recently by ALA.  And, at the recent midwinter conference, there were meetings and sessions on this topic. Typically, we might think of these spaces most within the context of public or academic libraries, but I see no reason why meeting places for enhancing creativity could not fit within most library types. Check out this article by ALA which also includes some popular  activities and tools for  these spaces. If you already have a makerspace in your library, tell us about it in comments!
