Hack the Library
How we can use our library to make Worthing an even better place to live?

A FabLab / Makerspace allows all age groups to come together to learn, develop vocational skills and create products. It can act as an educational resource for schools or adult learners and a prototype laboratory for small businesses in the Worthing area.

A FabLab or MakerSpace is a community workshop where users can create and build prototype products using a variety of technologies such as power tools, 3D printers, coding devices like Rasperry Pi or the BBC Microbit or design software and audio visual technologies.

It takes the Library back to its 19th century roots as a resource for learning and self improvement for local people and looks forward by helping people develop the technologies that will shape the 21st century.
