[CHILD-YA] Call for articles: MakerSpaces – more than just 3D printers

MakerSpaces have become popular in libraries last years. More and more libraries provide access to opportunities for people to gather together and to learn, discuss, discover, test and create. It can be called MakerSpace, Library Lab, Incubator, HackerSpace or something else. The activities can be anything from programming to repairing bicycles, from DIY woodwork to crocheting. Especially for children and young adults it is a place for collaborative learning, developing and exploring one's interests. Key words are participating, sharing and working together.

What kind of spaces, tools and activities does your library have as children's and young adults' makerspaces? We are especially looking for innovative examples of other activites than the use of 3D printing. Write a short proposal (four or five lines) for an online article, for the Newletter that Section Libraries Children and Young Adults will publish on IFLA website in June.

Please send your proposal before May 2nd to Info Coordinator Ulla Pötsönen, The editorial board will study the proposals and answer latest on May 8th. Deadline for full articles is June 1st.
