The Gadget Zone

The Evolve Project is a collaborative platform that works with libraries around the world. We believe that libraries should be creating stories rather than just providing them.

We help libraries create maker spaces and fablabs along with the coaching and guidance to take their environments to the next level. Libraries are community anchors and they should be positioned to provide the resources and connections to allow patrons to build innovative works, discover new things, and interact with others. By partnering with start-ups that have interactive and engaging technologies and integrating those products into library environments; we start building towards a better tomorrow with our communities.
