Library's Mobile Makerspace up and running
Kirksville, MO. —
The Adair County Library's Mobile Makerspace Project is officially up and running and ready for use.
The Mobile Makerspace consists of items on a cart residents can use from an IPAD, snap circuits, oxobots, arts and crafts, and their biggest purchase, a 3D printer.
The project was suggested by the Kirksville Leadership Institute after thinking of ways to better the Kirksville community.
From there the group raised over $4,000 to purchase everything on their wish list.
Children librarian Cory Landon says it's an opportunity for kids and adults to use technology they may not otherwise be able to use.
“ Anytime that we have things out and we’re using them, not just the kids, but the adults are just as fascinated because so many haven’t seen a 3 D printer or seen one in action before and not only can you come watch it in action you can actually design and build something of your own.”
The library is inviting the public to come out and use some of their new technologies this Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
