The Montour Elementary School library is home to more than just books. In fact, the books are outnumbered by hundreds of tiny, brightly colored Lego building blocks. The bright, open space — dubbed the world’s first Brick Makerspace by Lego Education — is designed to give students room to move around, work together and build.

When the Farmington Libraries noticed that its patrons hadn’t been using its computer lab as they had in the past, the staff started to think about ways to transform the space.

The Makerspace, a new addition to the Tompkins County Public Library, is providing the tools for the community to get creative and learn new skills. Located across from the BorgWarner Room, the space has work tables, 3-D printers, fully equipped audio booths, a laser cutter, an embroidery machine and other craft tools. That area opens up to a Digital Learning Lab set up like a classroom with laptops and whiteboards. The space is the library’s way of keeping up with the needs of the community.
