Westport Library Makes Cover of Library Journal
The Library is featured on the cover of the October 1 issue of Library Journal, the largest library publication in the country. Two of the three pictures on the cover are of the Westport Library’s Maker Space. The cover article is about public libraries that are leading the trend in creating spaces where people can come together to design and create for either personal fulfillment or entrepreneurship. Maker Spaces in libraries are the latest step in the evolving debate over what libraries are, and what they should be. On October 15, Westport Library Director Maxine Bleiweis and Asst. Director Bill Derry will be featured in an American Library Association free webinar about the creation and development of the Westport Library Maker Space.
