In addition to the traditional offering, more and more libraries are investing in makerspaces to bring extra social value and empowerment to its community. In these makerspaces, people work with digital fabrication technology to make things themselves. This new kind of digital literacy is essential to ensure that the benefits of the next digital disruption benefit the entire society.
FabLib makes it possible for users to acquire digital skills. By not only offering the tools but also expert guidance and (learning) activities, the FabLib is a great added value for the library and its community.
