Thanks to everyone who attended our makerspaces presentation yesterday at the Anderson branch of Lincoln City Libraries. Here’s our presentation, resources list, and proof that there is still a use for Workdbook.

Do Space has been in the local news a whole bunch this week. Here’s a link roundup:

A few minor corrections from these reports:

  • We do have over 200 computers but we do not have “200 workstations.”
  • There are no fees for educational events.
  • We did not mail out a Do Space card to everyone with an Omaha Public Library Card. It was more along the lines of one per-household of those with OPL cards.

If you don’t understand why this is the coolest thing I found on this weekend’s 375-mile book sale road trip, then you will never be as much of a librarian/computer geek as me 😉

Post Falls (ID) Public Library

I visited the Post Falls Public Library in Idaho back in August 2006. I recall that trip fondly due to a public concert by a local band one evening that week.
