We’re very excited to share with you a video made by Kristina Holzweiss, Librarian of the Year in 2015, and an amazing MakerSpace role model! This is an educator with a lot of creativity, drive, and passion for what she does. We’re lucky enough to have her walk us through her entire library, where she’s cultivated a space for the student imagination to soar.
