    Apologies for cross posting.

    We are preparing a study about accessibility in public library makerspaces. This study will help to inform public librarians how to make their spaces more accessible for all, creating more inclusive libraries. We want to know about your experiences in public libraries and in makerspaces, as public librarians and public library users. 

    We would like to invite you to take part in this process, to share your knowledge and experiences with us. For your participation, you will be entered into a drawing for a $30 Amazon gift card. Your involvement is voluntary. Any information you share with us will be kept private and confidential. For more information, and if you want to participate, please visit the following online survey: tinyurl.com/librarymaking

    If you have any questions, please contact us at amanders@odu.edu and abileigh@uwm.edu.  

    Thank you,

    Dr. Amelia Anderson and Dr. Abigail Phillips
