Libraries are more than a storage house for books; they are friendly places for discovery where creativity and learning is nurtured! Do it yourself (DIY) culture has permeated into libraries giving patrons of all ages a chance to dream, think, and create interesting things. These collaborative learning environments, sometimes called makerspaces, are spaces where people can share innovative ideas and learn new skills and are a perfect fit in libraries primarily because it helps to enhance a library’s mission, which is to encourage lifelong learning.

Presented at TEDx Tampa Riverwalk on August 29, 2015.
