  23. 23. POLICIES? Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library “The team of staff working on my library’s makerspace gave some good thought to policies, procedures, and more functional guidelines for use of the space and equipment. “For policies … well, we don’t have any. Other policies like our customer behavior policy and our computer use policy really cover everything we need. So we have a list of more functional “procedures” that can change as the space changes. Here’s what we have so far.” http://www.davidleeking.com/2014/10/07/guidelines-for-our-makerspace/
  24. 24. CONFESSION TIME… ▪ Who is scheming about a makerspace in their library? ▪ Who has a 3D printer in their library? ▪ Who has community space for creative projects in their library? ▪ Who is collaborating with other folks on maker programs, events or workshops in your library? ▪ Who wants to partner to create a makerspace in their library? ▪ Who has a makerspace in their library?
