We express ourselves in many ways. Storyteller Margaret Clauder uses ventriloquism, puppetry, and even a little bit of magic to engage the children as she tells stories. Ask your kiddo what he/she thought of her visit at Spicewood.
I am the librarian at Spicewood, and this year we're joining the maker movement. Maker spaces come in all shapes and sizes, and are not defined by a specific set of materials or spaces, but rather a mindset of collaboration and creation. Libraries are about learning and access to materials, and maker spaces provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, build, create and tinker as they engage in extended STEAM opportunities. Our makerspace is in the beginning stage this year. Let's see where it goes!
