Public libraries aren't just for reading these days -- especially in Los Angeles. Since 2012, more than 4,000 children have gathered at more than 134 libraries to participate in maker workshops, which focus on STEAM initiatives. L.A. library staff are trained in tech fields like coding, robotics and more, and they're able to teach attendees some of what they know. Recently, library staff ran a workshop where kids could build "Shy Bots," which are robots that are sensitive to light and "run away" when they are exposed to it. Maker workshops in Los Angeles are free to attend and are two hours long.
