Libraries have long been a place for people to come and learn. In recent years, makerspaces have become popular in libraries as a way to provide innovative and educational opportunities for patrons. Makerspaces allow people of all ages to come together to create, invent, and learn. There are endless possibilities for makerspace activities for libraries!
