Dunn County Makerspace

Don and I have exchanged emails about the Fulton and Edna Holtby Museum of Science and Technology. I had suggested that the historical society operate it as a makerspace:

A hackerspace (also referred to as a hacklab, makerspace or hackspace) is a community-operated workspace where people with common interests, often in computers, machining, technology, science, digital art or electronic art, can meet, socialize and collaborate. Hackerspaces have also been compared to other community-operated spaces with similar aims and mechanisms such as Fab Lab, Men’s Sheds, and with commercial “for profit” companies such as TechShop.

A lot of makerspaces are operated as an member-funded organization (profit or non), but there are others operated out of public libraries.
