More and more libraries are incorporating
Makerspaces as part of the available resources for the public. With a focus on
lifelong learning, creativity, and innovation, makerspaces can offer people an
opportunity to explore new hobbies, interests, and job skills by providing
tools and resources that they may otherwise not have access to. Is your library
looking to begin or expand a makerspace? Not sure where to start or how to take
the next step? In this presentation we will share an overview of the La Porte County
Public Library Exchange, a makerspace located in La Porte, Indiana; what the
Exchange offers; and lessons learned along the way that may be helpful to
consider when starting or expanding your library’s makerspace.
Webinar date and time: Wednesday, April 26, 2023 / 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST
