Bloomfield College Library Awarded Makerspace Grant

By Alicia Cook

Bloomfield College is happy to announce that the American Theological Library Association (ATLA) has awarded the institution a grant in the amount of $1,000 for initiating a library makerspace. Dr. Gregory Reid, Director of the Library, formally applied for the grant.

A library makerspace is an area and/or service that offers individuals an opportunity to create intellectual and physical materials using resources such as computers, 3-D printers, audio and video capture and editing tools, and traditional arts and crafts supplies.

“The grant will move the library makerspace beyond concept and into tangible reality for the College. Resources will now be acquired and their educational value demonstrated,” said Dr. Reid. “Skills students develop using makerspace resources will engender not only increased confidence, but also, increased marketability.” 

The College offering a religion program to students enabled the College access to ATLA membership and support.
