Maker Experiences

What is a makerspace? It's a learning environment for people to connect with others and create meaningful projects, using technologies and other tools that might not be easily accessible. Here are three types of maker experiences currently offered at your Library. 

Idea Box

Charlotte Mecklenburg Library encourages visitors to get “creatively messy”
with free access to tools to design,quote The Idea Bob helped me make a dream a reality quote build and co-create. Inside a glass room in Main Library in uptown Charlotte, you’ll hear the whirring of machines. It’s the sound of learning and comes from Idea Box, a makerspace that opened to the public in 2015.
