Great question! I thought of the term as I was reading the above article this morning and did a quick Google search and did not find any relevant uses of the word. Although, I am thinking the term Creatorium might work better and sound better. The basic meaning behind the word is similar to the terms imaginarium or exploratorium. With a twist instead of only inspiring imagination and exploration let enable creation of ideas, tools, and products digital and physical. The library could become a community hub or nexus for innovators, educators, and inventors taking data,information, and knowledge then using tools provided by the library to create or turn their ideas into books, videos, and now with 3D printers create models and working products.
