NPR has an interesting piece about a new wave in Hackerspace funding and facilities: Public libraries are partnering with hacker- and makerspaces in a win-win relationship. The libraries, struggling with trying to stay relevant in the new digital distribution model for books and media, get the foot traffic they need while the hackerspaces get funding opportunities, proper facilities (not a small task), and an outlet for exposure to new members. So far, only a few libraries/makerspaces have partnerships, but those participating are satisfied with the arrangement.
author John Baichtal explains what hackerspaces are and he talks about how they work and who runs them. The book also features 24 hackerspace projects from hackerspaces all around the world.
Harford Hackerspace is featured in Chapter 15: DIY CNC ROUTER.
