Library patrons are demanding more and more from their libraries, and the Dubuque Carnegie Stout library is responding. It's raised enough money to start renovating part of the second floor into a Maker Space.
Director, Susan Henricks, says the library already has lots of equipment for patrons to use, but it's usually in storage. The list includes iPads, MacBooks, robots, 3-D printers, and electric circuit kits.
Libraries have always been in the book business, but Henricks says they've been flexible and expanded to include other materials.
