What is a Makerspace?
The Springfield City Library is a hub for free access to information and technology, social and civic engagement, and support of personal enrichment, well being, and lifelong learning. In support of this mission, the Library provides a community workspace where people with common interests can socialize and collaborate. This workspace is commonly known as a Makerspace, a place for crafting, tinkering, and experimentation with technologies like 3D printing, sewing machines, and recording equipment, all of which are available at the East Forest Park Branch. The library hopes to cultivate a network of creative community makers that are interested in tinkering for professional, educational, or personal reasons. The Makerspace is a place to create, invent, and learn.
