When I first realized that a MakerSpace was needed in my library, I jumped right in reading, visiting, and learning. Our space has been an integral part of my library curriculum for the last few months.
Because of some forward thinking staff members and administrators, the MakerSpace is already on the MOVE! After some rearranging, the maker materials are moving to a bigger space (about twice the size) and still in the library. It is such a great space because it has a built in ledge that will work perfectly for the new sewing machines and supplies that are coming from a Donors Choose Project...THANK YOU to those who donated! The ledge will also make a great tinkering space for my kids who are learning how things work!
Today my family and I went in and did a quick move of all the MakerSpace materials. I am really excited for our kids to see it on Tuesday. Many were not aware of the change.
Below are a few before and after pictures.
New location (Old computer lab) Huge thanks go out to our computer techs and custodians for clearing out the room.
The original MakerSpace location will now be a production studio. The green screen is at my house in dire need of a good ironing.
Relocated the MAKE sign!
The switch created quite a mess.
All set up and ready to go for the arrival of kids on Tuesday.
The built in ledge is a lovely mauve color, but hey. it is a ledge with multiple electrical outlets!
