I also think this increase in maker culture is about community, a reaction against the lack of connections in the modern world and a desire to see something, touch something real created by our own hands. in this regard libraries become even more important as they can create access to both equipment, space and a supportive community. Allowing people to bring more meaningful connections into their lives.
Libraries as centers of community engagement is a long held tradition so therefore only natural to include the ‘maker movement’ whether it be traditional or technology based.
