‘Hands-On’ Libraries Offer More Than Just Books
These institutions are more like labratories that function as a hub to host creativity and interactive projects.
Online Education Database has rated the top 10 libraries that have reinvented themselves as laboratories. These libraries provide visitors with a hands-on and practical learning approach, as opposed to only book-knowledge.
One of the libraries listed is the Library Farm at the Northern Onondaga Public Library that lets patrons explore and use a block of land for free to grow and harvest organic plants. While the Digital Arts Lab at the Salinas Public Library offer a wide range of Apple computers, tech tools, and powerful software for visitors to design and create their own digital art, music, video, or websites.
