Everyone reacts differently when faced with change. Some find thrill in the unknown, while others find comfort in holding on to what they know best.
The introduction of the Library’s new Maker Space has been met with reactions on both ends of this spectrum, including many in between. So we feel it’s important that the public knows that this new space, however unfamiliar, confusing, or overwhelming it may seem, can actually make positive changes in the lives of many of our patrons, including you!
You may have no interest in learning how to 3D print, but maybe you like to sew? Or maybe you have enjoyed watching your family grow through the years by filming home videos. Have you ever thought about converting those video cassettes to DVDs? Maybe you don’t have the patience for crafting with your hands, but you have an eye for photography and visual editing? Perhaps you’ve painted on a canvas, but have you ever tried painting on an iPad?
These are just a few of the things you can do in our new Maker Space, and you don’t have to be a tech-wiz to try them out. Plus, you’re not alone! There’s a librarian to help show you how to use each piece of equipment or software to help get you started.
So if you find yourself hesitant to change, try to challenge yourself these next few weeks and check out our new Maker Space. We’d love to show you around and answer any of your questions!
