MakerSpace - JoCoLibrary

MakerSpace - JoCoLibrary | Makerspaces + Libraries | Scoop.it

Located next to the Information Services desk, the MakerSpace is a place you can go to learn new skills and software, make cool stuff and customize your world. Use the space to play, tinker and experiment with media, design and electronics in an open and collaborative environment. There are no age limits here! A 10 year old can teach classes and a 70 year old can play with toys.

Doug Mirams's curator insight, March 9, 2013 9:41 AM

Do you have any underused space in your town or city? Cleveland Public Library and an arts studio plans to turn vacant lots near CPL's branches into summer literacy festivals, with local arts and reading. If you can help out, this is also a Kickstart project http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/literarylots/literary-lots
