Abstract (Document Summary)

The town of Fayetteville, NY is known as the boyhood home of US Pres Grover Cleveland and the former headquarters of the L & JG Stickley furniture company. But in the information world, the Fayetteville Free Library (FFL) has become recognized as a leader in the maker movement. The program's innovative use of technology has led to greatly enhanced community outreach. One of FFLs early ventures into nontraditional library services was the establishment of a digital creation lab, which provides patrons with the facilities to make videos and other digital media productions. Technology is certainly important in FFL's Fab Lab, but Susan Considine, executive director of FFL, emphasizes that it is not the main driving force. Education classes are an important part of FFL's community outreach efforts. Classes are not only conducted by professionals; a wide range of experts from the community, from teenagers to retirees, share their knowledge and offer classes in their areas of expertise.
