Library as Incubator Project - "The mission of the Library as Incubator Project is to promote and facilitate creative collaboration between libraries and artists of all types, and to advocate for libraries as incubators of the arts." The site highlights tons of fascinating things being done in or related to libraries!
Library Makers - (as reviewed in this Library as Incubator post) "is somewhere between a how-to craft book and a web magazine – basically a solid inventory of craft and art projects that work well in a library – the materials are things that most library craft supply rooms have already, or are easily obtainable."
From Westport Public Library: "The Library’s Maker Faire in April was so successful that we decided to keep the Maker mindset going. Builder and designer Joe Schott will be building a Maker Shed in The Great Hall, a place where people can come together to create and make innovative projects. The first will be two 15-foot wooden airplanes, which will be displayed after they’re completed. Stay tuned for more information about what will be happening in the Maker Shed"
"We want to see 3D printing, FabLabs and Hackerspaces become a regular feature--in addition to its other services--at every public library in the country. This is a description of our proposal to create a FabLab in the Fayetteville Free Library and gives a brief introduction to what 3D printing is and how revolutionary it will be for those who are unfamiliar with it."
"Makerspaces, sometimes also referred to as hackerspaces, hackspaces, and fablabs are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn. In libraries they often have 3D printers, software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies and tools, and more. Here are some excellent resources for anyone thinking about setting up a makerspace in their organization." from iLibrarian
