Creating a makerspace that will actually be used and increase the volume of patron attendance at the librarty, while avoiding the catastrophe of spending funds on spaces and programs that go under utilized can be a paralous challenge. What seems like fun and a great idea at first, can flop if it fails to fulfill the creative channels hidden in the interests, talents or wishes of the patrons and community.
Eureka! Factory knows how to discover specific creative space and program needs and wants within a community. Designing library makerspaces and creative programs tuned to the community in which the library serves is a primary factor in successful implementation, while understanding and embracing a culture of listening, agility and flexible growth is a key to sustainability.
