How do you solve the problem of developing a maker culture across a county library system with 26 branches, 3,000 km2 and diverse community needs? Learn how Lambton County Library designed mobile, pop-up makerspaces to meet community interests and our strategic goals.

– Incorporate the maker philosophy across a large, rural, geographical area using pop-up services
– Set realistic expectations, prepare staff and
volunteers and celebrate success
– Leverage existing relationships with makers in
the rural communities to identify new opportunities and
advocate for community use
