Each week in our #GivingTuesday series, we highlight an organization that you can give to. By “giving,” we usually mean “giving money.”
This week is different. This week’s featured group asks for giving expertise and time.
Whether you call it a makerspace, hackerspace, a backspace, or a hacklab, around the country libraries and communities are pulling together resources to make it easy for people to create. The flexible term allows for activities as varied as soldering circuits or welding metal and computer programming or wood carving. These community workshops are popping up across the country, bringing together skills and tools for people who might not have access to them otherwise.
