Makerspace Interest Group

The Makerspace Interest Group meets quarterly at different locations. At these meetings, we discuss topics and share information related to working in makerspaces and providing maker-related programs to all ages. Working together, we have also been able to participate in different events and conferences showing and telling others about libraries and their roles in the maker movement.

CAL Maker Workshop

May 5, 2020 9 am - 4 pm
Library 21C
1175 Chapel Hills Dr
Colorado Springs, CO 80920

The Maker Interest Group has put together a survey about the set-up and budget of maker programs throughout our group and we hope you can take 15 minutes to fill it out ahead of the workshop. We only need the survey filled out once per branch and you will be asked about general budget and staffing numbers. We will present our findings at the May 5 conference and it will form the basis of a dataset that will help maker librarians all over the state plan and budget for their programs.
