26 Challenges New learning Painting Electrical Furniture 26

27 Opportunities Community interest - lots of potential partners Enthusiasts love to share (sound rec, design, etc.) Introduce new technology into library (MACs) Test programs and services in Makerspace – then roll them out to the branches. Not a downtown only project. Bring branch staff into the space 27
