The mission of Quincy High School Library is to ensure that students and staff are effectice users and producers of ideas and information.

Makerspaces are collaborative spaces where people gather to get creative with DIY projects, invent new ones, and share ideas.

An example of a makerspace would be creating a makerspace out of cards relating to the book Heartless, Marissa Meyer’s new look at Alice in Wonderland’s tyrannical Red Queen a Lewis Carroll’s classic revisited.

Here are a few makerspaces we have:

Hat making

Basket weaving

                 Transforming solar robots

                 Robots

                          Inventor kits

                               Toothpick magic

                          Caricatures

                           Magic tricks

                            Jewlery making
