Maker Programming

What does "Maker" mean?

Maker culture emphasizes learning-through-doing in a social environment. Maker culture emphasizes informal, networked, peer-led, and shared learning motivated by fun and self-fulfillment. Maker culture encourages DIY (do-it-yourself) and explores the intersection between technology and traditional arts and crafts.

Maker Opportunities at WPL

Our librarians have been hosting Maker programs for patrons of all ages to engage in creative do-it-yourself activities focusing on technology, crafting, and the intersection of those two disciplines. Examples of acitivities include DIY computer games (via Scratch), Silk-screening, DIY stickets and stencils (via Silhouette vinyl cutter), and many more.
