Nice piece from EdSurge News about makerspaces as social hangouts for teens.
One library wanted more students to work there. One needed a physical space dedicated to teens and technology. Another wanted to create a safe place for students from all over the city. All three solved their problems with makerspaces.
Deerfield Academy’s new library, Hennepin County’s Best Buy Teen Tech Center (its official name) and Boston Public Library’s Teen Central are among a new group of libraries rebranding, reorganizing and renovating to include not only books but also tools. They’re ushering in a new era of digital makerspaces in libraries.
