Riverside Public Library goes high-tech with MakerSpace – Press Enterprise via Press Enterprise

The Riverside Public Library offers budding inventors and engineers the opportunity to explore new technology using equipment that may not otherwise be available to them.

While the written word remains the core of library services, the downtown Riverside Public Library offers more than just books.

“You don’t get shushed in the library anymore,” said Tonya Kennon, Riverside Public Library director.

She notes that you can see everything from kids involved in structured play to community members using new technology.

“We know that play is the business of children and that play leads to imagination and socialization and these are building blocks for literacy.”
