The Maker Jawn Initiative at the Free Library of Philadelphia is a team of artists, engineers, designers, and thinkers who work in libraries. We are united in our dedication to mentoring non-dominant youth as well as their families in creative technology. We are located in all six North Philadelphia neighborhood libraries. We encourage makers of all ages through access to resources, tools, and safe spaces for interest driven projects. Maker Jawn experiments with creating replicable, scalable spaces and programs that prioritize the creativity, cultural heritage, and interests of diverse communities, embedded directly within the fabric of the library.
