Viewing her Twitterfeed, I found this great definition of a Makerspace by Laura Fleming: "A Makerspace is A Metaphor For a Unique Learning Environment That Encourages Tinkering, Play, and Open Exploration For All." The Library being a repository of knowledge for centuries can clearly add, as an ancillary, the appropriate space where that knowledge can be PUT TO USE!
I believe Bill Kurtz is thinking along these lines and I hope to talk with about it. I would love--especially with the building changes coming to the district--to be able to make sure that some space be left adjacent to the LMC-- the Lab for example--and turned into a Maker-area. With the increased importance of STEM in our curriculums, I can see the LMC as being the place where traditional knowledge and 21st century skills combine for the student.
The book below is going to be something I read over the summer; the YouTube video, I found a good place to start understanding the Makerspace concept.
