Library Creativity Study

I’m seeking people who have used libraries to do something creative–as part of a program, in a makerspace or other creative space, or whatever. If you are interested, here are the details:

Have you ever:

  • Used a library makerspace or media lab equipment (like a 3D printer or video equipment)?
  • Participated in creative programs at any library (such as cooking or crafting)?
  • And are you 12 or older?
  • And willing to spend 1 or more hours furthering research?

This study involves participants audiorecording or writing a short history of their creative lives and how they have/have not intersected with libraries. All information is anonymized and participant identity kept entirely confidential.
