Makerspaces, sometimes called Hackerspaces, can be any area where people gather to make and create. In these spaces, people share supplies, skills, and ideas, and often work together on projects. Many libraries have found that maker culture and Makerspaces fit naturally with their existing missions, and have begun to incorporate Makerspaces into the services they offer their communities. Maker spaces support learning in an informal environment, cultivate an interest in science and technology, foster play and exploration, nurture peer-to-peer learning, and develop a culture of creating as opposed to consuming. We supply Makerspace furniture in many styles.
Our Clover Table is a generous 60″ x 60″ laminate work surface with built in cabinet storage for easy stowing and material swaps. Locking casters are standard on this model, so it’s easy to relocate in a multi-purpose space. We can even source seating to match the Clover.

Teachers and librarians agree that when someone is engaged in an active and fun space, they will learn more easily. A Makerspace is more or less, a tool to “learn by doing.” Librarians are flocking to info sessions across the country to brainstorm and share ideas of their own. But there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all Makerspace, it has to be created for your community. We offer many lines of furniture, each tailored to your space. We will manage the details, all you need to do is make!
