There is a long counter where students can have space to draw, write, cut, paste, etc. There is moveable furniture that can be arranged for individuals to work independently or in a cluster for a group of students to work together around a table. Around the room will be supplies such as paper, writing utensils, art supplies, building materials, etc. The MakerSpace is located adjacently to the library’s TV studio, encouraging the sharing of students’ projects with the student body. It will be monitored by an adult when students are using the MakerSpace.
