Libraries have long been known as places of quiet study and contemplation. But in recent years, many libraries in North Texas have added makerspaces, where people can come together to create and tinker.


Maker Library Discovery is a market research campaign that attempts to uncover the needs, wants, and pains of the communities that use these library makerspaces.


The goal is to discover how these makerspaces can best meet the needs of their communities.


The results will be used to help improve the design and operations of library makerspaces, and to help develop new programs and services that better meet the needs of their communities.
