The purpose of a makerspace is to inspire an interest in science, technology, design, and 21st century skills in the people who are served by the library. In a library makerspace patrons of varying ages can work together, alone, or with library staff on creative projects. The goal of a makerspace is to allow patrons to learn through direct experimentation and from each other. This is directly in line with the San Diego Public Library’s Mission: To inspire lifelong learning through connections to knowledge and each other.
