Makerspaces: Do-It-Yourself Projects
What is a Makerspace? A Makerspace is a creative initiative designed to expand New Jersey library horizons with service models that transcend traditional roles. Makerspaces can be useful in all types of libraries, and can incorporate a wide variety of programming, events, and technologies for library users of all ages and stages, bringing people together to create something using digital or analog technology.
