Libraries don’t have to (and shouldn’t) choose between being a library or a “makerspace.” They are both!

All of these things go on in every library! Every library is a makerspace and a library.
Many libraries have closed in the UK which is a very bad move. Libraries are full of magic and wonder. On a positive note many libraries have really upped their game. I love mobile libraries as well.
