What is a Makerspace?

MakeIt_logo   The Louisville Public Library Makerspace is a creative space where people can collaborate on projects and share tools they may not be able to afford on their own. It’s a great place to meet people and share knowledge.
Our Makerspace is a hub of DIY information and activity for learners of all ages who want hands-on experience with robotics, programming, recording equipment, and other sorts of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) tools. And it’s free!

Makerspaces and public libraries are natural partners. As a professor of library science recently put it, “We’re in the curiosity business!” Stop by your Makerspace and see where your curiosity leads you!

For the complete Makerspace usage guidelines, please review the following:
