The maker movement is continuously growing. It's entering a new phase with the introduction of new industrial tools and other technologies. As a result, the number of institutions taking part in this revolution is also increasing. One of these institutions is the library.

They are building makerspaces, providing platforms where patrons can explore new skills and technologies that are changing business landscapes.
To support this growth, we would like to share a few tips we have learned over the years working with workshops, schools, and libraries to help you get started with creating a makerspace in your own library.
