Hi Maker folks! I work in a public library makerspace and I'm hoping to find out more about how you provide supplies to your users. Any insight you can share on these questions would be most appreciated!
What type of makerspace/institution?
What is your current method for providing supplies to users?
What are the pros and cons of this method?
What would you like to implement in the future?
For example, do you perhaps offer a limited amount of something for free? Does the user need to have a library card? Or do you charge for supplies including filament, plywood, etc...?
My public library makerspace
is transitioning off of the initial grant funding and we need to determine our policies around providing supplies to our users.
