All about the LES Library & Makerspace

The library in our school is the learning “hub” and a multi-media center. It still continues to be a place where students can come to find books that they are interested in, but it has also developed into so much more. In January of 2016, the library became even more “21stCentury” when it added a MakerSpace. Some of the technology available includes, an iPad cart, an Osmo Kit, Dot and Dash Robots, Squishy Circuits, Snap Circuits and new in the Fall of 2016, a 3-D printer. There is also a giant Lego Wall, which allows the students to build their designs in a 3-D manner. Other exciting features of the MakerSpace include sewing, knitting, crocheting, playdough, drawing, and much more! The Liberty Elementary library, and our new MakerSpace, are great places for our students to read, explore, create, learn, imagine, invent, and have fun!
