Library Makers, Madison, Wisconsin, Blog by a Madison Public Library Youth Services
The Library as Incubator Project was created by Erinn Batykefer, Laura Damon-Moore, and Christina Jones, and was inspired by a discussion about creative advocacy for libraries in one of their courses at the UW-Madison School of Library and Information Studies.
The Project highlights the ways that libraries and artists can work together, and works to strengthen these partnerships. At a time in which both libraries and arts organizations are often having to do more with less, it makes sense for these two parts of our culture to support each other. The Library as Incubator Project calls attention to one of the many reasons libraries are important to our communities and our culture, and provides a dynamic online forum for sharing ideas.
The folks behind Make it @ Your Library came together in 2012 as part of ILEAD USA, an IMLS grant funded library program with the intention of helping librarians realize makerspace projects in their communities.
