Palm Harbor Library is home to the Hazel Incantalupe Makerspace, an art space just for children. Youth Services Director, Kiki Durney, told us a bit more about the Makerspace and what the great Young Makers of Palm Harbor Library are bringing to Gulf Coast MakerCon this year.
GCMC: Tell us what you make at the Palm Harbor Library makerspace.
KD: The children of Palm Harbor and beyond make anything and everything with the variety of crafting materials provided in our MakerSpace.
GCMC: Why is the space important to them?
KD: It gives them a place to express their creativity!
GCMC: Why do you think Gulf Coast MakerCon is a good place to show what you do?
KD: It helps us show that a MakerSpace can be more than 3D printers and technology. Our MakerSpace serves children ages 5-12. We do not require a library card, so anyone and everyone age eligible that comes to the library is welcome to explore and enjoy our MakerSpace.
