The Zach S. Henderson Library is adding a new student workspace this semester called Makerspace.

“We saw an awful amount of students coming into the library doing large projects with many supplies and not enough space to work,” Bede Mitchell,  Henderson Library Dean said. 

The new area will have three spaces for students to work on posters, brochures and dioramas. Students can also check out kits from Access Services with supplies to help with projects.

“We thought creating a Makerspace would be a great addition to the Henderson Library so students can have enough space to work on their projects,” Mitchell said. 

Mitchell said that the Makerspace will expand soon and the idea of adding 3D printers has been suggested.

This semester the library will be collecting surveys from students who use the resources and services from Marketplace.
