Rationale for School Library Makerspaces

Rationale School Library Makerspaces

This week in our Library Makerspace. Our Makerspace is part of our library program and thus connected in many ways to learning at our school. The Makerspace is a place, but it also connects ideas, people and other places, and in these ways it extends beyond its physical boundaries, both virtually and online, and to other parts of the school, and also beyond the school.

Makerspace Ready for Next Stage

Our library makerspace is shown in images below. The next stage in the library makerspace development will involve removing a small room in the library (the video editing room), so that we can move the fiction shelves over to create more open space for robotics and other such activities. The green screen will be relocated into this bigger space, so students can have more depth for green screen video filming. The images also show a plan for screens that will be added over the holidays that will allow tutorials to be displayed and more collaboration. Previous pics of the development of the space over time,can be seen at the links below. The 3D printer is housed in a small room near the library counter that is also used for makerspace storage.

The larger plan of the library, in the images below, shows the changes over the years. The Librarian’s Office is now the 3D printing room. The McAuley Room is now the makerspace. The Curriculum Coordinator’s Room is now the video editing room, soon to be removed. We have another library; see Both libraries can be used by all students.
