PCL will take the PVD Young Makers Initiative and other technology-based programs on the road this summer. The specially-equipped Everyplace Makerspace vehicle will enable staff to transport makerspace equipment and materials to neighborhood schools, recreation centers, parks and to the buildings of community organizations. People of all ages will be able to learn how to code, sew, design, create and build using equipment, technology and materials that were previously restricted to library locations.
The project is the idea of PCL’s IT Manager, David Sok, and made possible in part by a $45,300 Studio Rhode grant from the RI Office of Library and Information Services (OLIS), using funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
