Facility gives free access to technology, tools
Libraries were created because books were so expensive and difficult to obtain for the average person. But with the Internet making information instantly available, libraries are evolving beyond their traditional role, said Brian Harding, Greater Sudbury Public Library's manager of library and heritage resources.
“We want to make sure the people have access to it, and they have access to the environment in which to explore that technology,” Harding said. That's the idea behind the makerspace room at the city library's main branch, which opened Jan. 20.
