Why Makerspaces?

Makerspaces have become one of the latest trends for libraries as they continue to adapt to the changing needs of users. Like other library services, makerspaces have developed as the needs of library users have expanded from print resources and traditional services to include a variety of digital formats and services. MultiMedia Services has put together a collection of different resources for all grade levels that can help teachers get started with a Maker mentality.
