"The Bubbler" @ the Madison Public Library

Makerspace: Madison Public Library sees innovation centers as a key part of its future. (The Capital Times, 12/26/2012)

Excerpt: While brainstorming about ways to gather people together for creative exchange continued, the initiative was dubbed the “Bubbler.” The name — a Wisconsin word for drinking fountain — worked both for its local resonance and as term for a community gathering space, Vieau says. It stuck. 

As now envisioned, the Bubbler will be a program incorporating elements of the “maker” movement that will radiate out from the new central library downtown into the branch public libraries. It will be an ongoing series of workshops and demonstrations where people share skills and tools and where participants make anything from T-shirts to musical recordings to self-published books.
