Welcome to DMS- our Dieterich Maker Space!
Our "DMS" is here to provide hands on learning experiences, help with critical thinking skills, and creation using tech tools and non-tech tools.
What is Makerspace?
HOW DO MAKERSPACES FIT INTO THE LIBRARY?
MISD libraries seek to empower all for a lifetime of learning by providing and promoting resources and tools in a variety of formats. In addition to traditional reading materials, when libraries offer tools and resources they allow patrons to further their research and learning through experimentation and creation. Even Ben Franklin, the founder of the public library, used library spaces for many of his early experiments!
