In the seven years since library school, I've managed many projects. Some successful. Some not. But something I've never done until now is manage the creation of a new space. For the past year and a half, a huge part of my job as Head of Popular Materials at the Ela Area Public Library has been to help create and open the library's makerspace. We're now at the point where this makerspace is about to open.
Let me tell you a little about Forge, our makerspace, because I truly believe this space will be unique and useful and beautiful. Forge is going to look like this.
After our grand opening on Sunday, I will be able to post an actual picture of the space!
