One of my favourite libraries in the Stockholm area is the recently launched ‘Bibblerian’, a small but dedicated place for reading, learning and making.
Step by step, and in partnership with the development project The Public Office , the library has a vision of becoming not only a place for checking out books, but also a free and open shared office space for project work, training and making.
Tomorrow I’m happy to be part of the library’s very first Maker Party, yay! As a matter of fact, it’s going to be also the very first Swedish library maker party. At the event, we will showcase a ‘smorgasbord’ of both physical and digital tools for making and interactivity, such as Scratch, fusible beads, knitting, Webmaker, App Maker, Leap Motion, Raspberry Pi, Arduino…. even the library’s own kitchen! Since it’s the first time this kind of event is hosted in the library we don’t really know how many will show up, or what kind of maker activites they will prefer. My guess is that the ‘kitchen make’ will be especially popular!
Will keep you posted here and on the event page!
