Maker Club at Parson Cross Library 2017

This was a 6 week trial to test community based maker clubs in libraries.

In Parson Cross, there is a generational divide, with children banned from the library - similar stories emerged in the other communities during our discussions with parents. Since June 2017, Bright Box has provided over 1,100 Sheffield children with digital skills activities at events in deprived communities in Sheffield.

We provided 10 weeks of after-school clubs at the Parson Cross library to gauge the appetite for these activities. One parent said, ā€œIā€™m happy to see the library helping kids learn how to use technology in a fun way.ā€
