After four years of qualitative research in library makerspaces, one thing is clear, every maker space is different. Each space is put together with their clients, patrons, or students in mind. Through photographs, librarian, student, and educator interviews, and questionnaires, this presentation will focus on the variety of opportunities offered by makerspaces in libraries around the world as well as the challenges, successes, and practicalities that librarians face when offering these services in their libraries. School, public, academic, and mobile library makerspaces will be included in this session with a special emphasis on their integration, accessibility, curricula, and projects.
