Survey Seeks Community Ideas on Equipment, Programs
The Coeur d’Alene and Lake City public libraries are conducting a survey to determine what patrons want for makerspace equipment and programs.
A makerspace is a community-operated workspace where people with common creative interests, often in computers, technology, science, art crafts, and sewing, can meet, socialize, and collaborate.
“Our community already has an excellent – fully equipped – makerspace at Gizmo,” said Library Director Bette Ammon. “And it isn’t our plan to compete with that resource. The libraries are considering adding equipment and events to create a makerspace environment appropriate for our facilities and staff and we want to know what our patrons would like to see here.”
People can respond to the survey online at: www.surveymonkey.com/r/92D3PW2 and can also fill out a paper version at the main library, 702 E. Front Ave., or at the Lake City branch in the high school on Ramsey Road.
