Episode Three: Library Makerspaces

This week we are looking at library makerspaces!

Makerspaces are an exciting trend in libraries of all types and sizes. Although their traditional programs are STEM/STEAM based technology learning, they can involve all sorts of programs that inspire patrons to try new skills and to create new things.

Our spotlight library this week is the Lewis and Clark Elementary Media Center in Liberty, MO. They are not only doing some very interesting work with their makerspace, in addition to sharing ideas for starting your own makerspace!; they also have some great resource for their community.

People’s vision of a library tends to revolve around books and computers, and of course we have those things. But there is so much more available!
