Transcript of MakerSpace = Project Space

Why do we need a MakerSpace? A flexible space inside the library that is set aside for community interaction would help us to begin working toward our vision of the library as a community center.
A visible location within the library's main collection would help us to spread the word about library programs and services that might otherwise go unnoticed by even our regular users.
An engaging service that is focused on experiences rather than materials will help us to build relevancy among those who do not rely on us for other services.
It will help us begin to make the “move from collection development to connection development” What is a MakerSpace? The Library as Incubator Project describes makerspaces as:
“collaborative learning environments where people come together to share materials and learn new skills… makerspaces are not necessarily born out of a specific set of materials or spaces, but rather a mindset of community partnership, collaboration, and creation.” I'm glad you asked :) What would our MakerSpace look like? Our MakerSpace is a Project Space for everyone The goal is for this space to be flexible enough to meet many different needs:
A place for people to meet & create hands-on projects with friends
A place with the resources to create digital projects for small businesses: websites, fliers, online media
A place to record and edit multimedia projects
A place to sit and play chess, scrabble or do homework The Logistics of creating a Project Space and why do we need one? what is a MakerSpace... Our Project Space should have an Open Door - available to all members of our community without any fees.

Our Project Space can help to open doors by being a resource for small businesses, students, retirees, crafters and many more members of our community. Removing standing shelves in the Teen Room
