dc.description.abstractMakerspaces are a growing area of service for all types of libraries. People with varying skill levels create projects in these collaborative environments with support from one another and access to equipment and materials. The resulting space and activities can greatly impact the community served by the library, but are not always seen as a clear application of the library’s mission. What motivates library staff members and librarians to create makerspaces in their libraries? What types of creative activities do libraries offer in their environments? The findings from a survey of library makerspaces will be shared, along with suggestions on makerspace creation from the library literature and extensive interviews with library makers. Come learn how a makerspace could work in your library.en_US
