A Maker Space is an environment where technology, equipment and software can be showcased, explored and taught.
In Yarra Plenty Regional Library’s Maker Spaces we want our community to experience and play with technology that is not readily accessible and allow opportunity to learn new skills.
Think of your local Maker Space not as a permanent physical space in the library but as an organic and flexible concept. Libraries with Maker Spaces will feature activities, events, classes, courses, displays and specialised equipment relating to their unique Maker Space theme and have passionate and knowledgeable staff in that area of interest.
Some Maker Spaces have equipment that is available at any time during opening hours. The majority of resources are accessed through the specialised programs.
See each Maker Space for more details.
