In some ways, the concept behind St. Louis Public Library’s Creative Experience makerspace, located at its downtown branch, sounds pretty simple: It’s a space dedicated to creating things. But as makers of all sorts of stuff know, it can be difficult to bring even the best ideas to fruition without the right tools.
Now, SLPL is adding a second such makerspace to the library district, reinventing existing space at its Barr branch located at Jefferson and Lafayette avenues.
On Wednesday’s St. Louis on the Air, host Sarah Fenske talked with Mary Meyer, manager of digital library services at St. Louis Public Library, and with Justin Struttmann, SLPL’s chief operating officer, about the thinking behind this new space and what patrons can soon expect to see.
