Summary Spaces that have been designed to allow users to create, build, and learn new projects and technologies, makerspaces employ a variety of tools. From crochet and painting to AutoCAD design software, developing a community around shared use of space and equipment -- a tenet of the makerspace movement -- fits squarely into a library's mission. Bagley examines nine makerspaces in public, academic, and school libraries, describing their design and technical decisions in depth and showing how each is doing something unique and different, under a wide range of budgets and project offerings
