Warwickshire County Council’s Library and Information Service is preparing for the launch of its third ‘Let’s Make’ space which will open in Leamington Spa on 7th October.
‘Let’s Make’ provides welcoming and accessible spaces where people can come together to create, try out new ideas, learn and share new skills.
The spaces offer a range of inspiring activities which include virtual and augmented reality, robotics, coding and programming, 3D design and printing, animation and film making, sewing, embroidery and crafting, together with music creation and soundscapes.
Councillor Kam Kaur, Warwickshire County Council’s Portfolio Holder for Customer and Transformation said: “Warwickshire County Council is committed to providing opportunities for our residents to further develop their skills and knowledge.
“Let’s Make services and resources help to build confidence. They offer access to the latest digital technologies and equipment allowing people to develop their knowledge and expertise and make things in different ways, offering new digital learning opportunities in Warwickshire libraries.”
With the help of Arts Council ‘Libraries Opportunities for Everyone’ Innovation funding, two Let’s Make spaces have already been developed in Nuneaton and Rugby libraries, and a further Let’s Make is set to launch in Leamington Spa.
