RE: “Inventors. Artists. Makers: Transforming dreams into reality @ your library”
Dear Tim Carrigan:
Wise County Public Library (WCPL) is pleased to submit this proposal for your review.
We look forward to your partnership in our efforts to serve the Wise County area.
Our much needed project, “Inventors. Artists. Makers: Transforming dreams into reality
@ your library”, is a partnership among Wise County Public Library, The University of Virginia’s
College at Wise, and Mountain Empire Community College. The project seeks to build a Maker
Space within the library, which will provide creative tools such as 3-D printers, a laser cutter,
and editing software.
WCPL has had problems reaching younger audiences. Recently, teen programming
was canceled due to lack of interest, and the YA collection is very small compared to every
other collection. To fix this, we need to appeal to younger generations. By creating a new,
unique, innovative space that includes modern technology and attractions, WCPL will be able to
establish itself as a valuable resource among this difficult demographic.
This grant project strives to create a new and unique attraction that will establish WCPL
as a valuable modern resource in the community by providing resources for learning that are
fun, unique to the area, and high-tech. The project will also partner with local schools and
colleges to create new ties to the community and promote the library’s resources
WCPL is committed to the success of this project. Our request to Sparks! Ignition Grants
for Libraries is $20,000.00. Planning is already underway, with the chosen partners’ contact
information gathered and ready to begin.
WCPL is part of the Lonesome Pine Regional Library (LPRL) system that includes nine
different branches spanning four counties. Since WCPL encompasses such a wide area, it

serves a varied community that includes low income workers, elderly retirees, and college
students. Its Mission Statement is as follows:
Lonesome Pine Regional Library will be the cornerstone of the region where children
and adults can experience personal enrichment and connect with one another as we:

Promote the love of reading.

Excel at providing resource to customers of all ages.

Create welcoming spaces for our community. (Appendix A)
Thank you for your time and attention. We look forward to working together to build a
better community. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or requests for
additional information.
Sincerely,
Amy Bond
Library Director

WCPL is located in the mountains of southwest Virginia. The Lonesome Pine Regional
Library system in its entirety serves a population of 110,066, with WCPL being the largest of the
nine branches. WCPL is located in the seat of Wise County, which is home to 40,589 residents.
(Appendix D)
Being a rural community, Wise County is in desperate need of opportunities and
resources that target young people and actively encourage them to participate. As noted in the
US Census statistics, a significant portion of the community is below poverty level, which
severely limits opportunities.
According to the Spark! Ignition website, the goals of the potential funds are to:
“…encourage libraries and archives to prototype and evaluate innovations that result in
new tools, products, services, or organizational practices. They enable grantees to
undertake activities that involve risk and require them to share project results–whether
they succeed or fail–to provide valuable information to the library field and help improve
the ways libraries serve their communities.” (IMLS, 2014)
This grant proposal fits perfectly within those goals, as it strives to introduce new,
innovative tools to improve a rural community that is disadvantaged in terms of opportunities
and income.
The ultimate goal of this grant project is to draw in young audiences, particularly teenage
and college age students, although its appeal will likely span a wide range of age groups. By
solidifying a young user base, the library will help to ensure its own future as well as establish
itself as a modern “cornerstone of the community.” (Appendix A)
Activities to reach this goal include:

Repurposing and establishing a section of the library to house a well-defined Maker
Space.

Contacting local organizations, in particular UVA-Wise, MECC, and the Pro-Art
Association, and creating local ties that will help establish the library as a valuable
resource within the community.

Creating surveys and feedback methods to evaluate the success and possible additions
and changes to the Maker Space, which will help the service adapt to user needs.
Evaluation of the success of this project will be determined via hard statistics, such as
number of patrons served and number of times that computers and workstations were
accessed, formal surveys via websites and physical handouts, and informal feedback methods
such as word of mouth.

ORGANIZATIONAL OVERVIEW
Wise County Public Library (WCPL) is part of the Lonesome Pine Regional Library
(LPRL) system that includes nine different branches spanning four counties. Since WCPL
encompasses such a wide area, it serves a varied community that includes low income workers,
elderly retirees, and college students.
The Lonesome Pine Regional Library system in its entirety serves a population of
110,066, with WCPL being the largest of the nine branches. WCPL is located in the seat of
Wise County, which is home to 40,589 residents. (US Census Bureau, 2014) WCPL is
considered the main branch of the system and includes the LPRL regional office, which
oversees all branches. As of 2013, the WCPL building housed 266,451 circulating materials, in
addition to offering a free inter-branch loan service between all branches of the Lonesome Pine
Regional system. (LPRL Annual Report, 2013, p. 6)
The US Census Bureau (2014) provides some insight on the user base that WCPL
serves in Wise County:

The area is also home to two colleges: The University of Virginia’s College at Wise
(UVA-Wise) and Mountain Empire Community College (MECC). UVA-Wise currently has a
student population of 2,067 (UVA-Wise, 2014) and MECC has 3,404 students (MECC, 2014).
These are significant numbers considering the rural nature of the area.

STATEMENT OF NEEDS
Being a rural community, Wise County is in desperate need of opportunities and
resources that target young people and actively encourage them to participate. As noted in the
US Census statistics, a significant portion of the community is below poverty level, which
severely limits opportunities. In an article for the Roanoke Times, journalist Duncan Adams
states that “Southwest Virginia is generally poorer, older and whiter than most other regions in
the state.” (Adams, 2014) In order for this to change, there will need to be more opportunities
that specifically target younger audiences.
In a recent article for local newspaper The Coalfield Progress, it was stated that the town
of Wise is seeking to turn itself into a “college town” that embraces its connection with UVAWise. However, efforts have been slow-going and it has proven difficult to draw college
students into town to participate in town events. Providing services and resources for this
particular audience are vital to the health and growth of the community. (Dunn, 2014) Cindi
Smoot, a Wise councilwoman and administrative assistant for the college’s alumni relations
office, stated that “finding ways to bring more students into town might also inspire young
entrepreneurs to stay after graduation, open a business, and make their lives here.” (2014)
WCPL itself has had difficulty in marketing toward the teen and college age
demographic. As of 2014, Teen Programs are no longer offered due to lack of interest, and the
YA novel collection is one of the smallest in the library. (LPRL Annual Report, 2013, p. 10)
A Maker Space at WCPL could prove to be a successful draw for teens and college
students in the area. By creating a draw that is unique to the area and specifically appeals to
the tech-savvy nature of today’s youth, the library could provide a much needed service that
addresses not only the needs of its young patrons and the library, but of the entire community
itself.
There are many obstacles facing young people in the Wise County area. Perhaps the
greatest challenge facing teens and college students (as well as the population in general) is the
previously mentioned financial difficulties faced by many in this area. With a significant portion
of the population under the poverty line, there are very little options when it comes to finding
quality resources for learning and education. The library’s current position as a free resource is
valued, but it is in desperate need of a technological update that would appeal to a more
modern, progressive community.
As noted previously, there is also a general apathy among college-age students in
regards to participating in town events. In Dunn’s article, it is noted that college students at
11
Final Grant Proposal
12
UVA-Wise tend to stay on campus, going between classes and dormitories but not much else.
Laura Mullins, Wise Town Planner, states that she isn’t sure whether the disconnect between
college students and the town is “due to disinterest among students or a lack of knowledge
about events and where they’re located.” (2014) It can been assumed that there is not enough
within the community to serve as a draw for these students. The article goes on to state that
other obstacles include “some students’ lack of transportation and difficulty in effectively
communicating what’s available to students off campus.” (Dunn, 2014)
The article also mentions that college students generally do not feel welcomed in the
community. As noted earlier, the US Census records show that the majority of residents in the
Wise area is made of up an older, white population. Dunn’s article mentions that “Wise is
traditional, much like the overall region” (2014), and that the residents can sometime oppose
change. In order to turn this around, the article mentions that “the community must make
attempts to interact with students and the college.” (2014) This is where the library could step
in. By providing a resource that is not only appealing but interactive, the library could serve to
build a connection with teens and college students that would foster an environment that better
suits the goal of a “college town.”
The library touts itself as a resource for all members of the community. As mentioned in
LPRL’s mission statement, the library strives to create “learning opportunities for professional
and personal development” as well as to “offer and advocate access for all.” (LPRL Annual
Report, 2012-2013, p. 3)
As a free resource, the library is perfect for appealing to the low income population of the
area. Considering that many teens and college students are without jobs/transportation, it is
important that they have resources outside of schools that are designed to promote learning and
growth.
Many libraries are creating Maker Spaces as “part of a growing movement of hands-on,
mentor-led learning environments to make and remake the physical and digital worlds. They
foster experimentation, invention, creation, exploration, and STEM learning.” (Institute of
Museum and Library Services, 2012, p.1) The goals of the library and the Maker Space are
summed up well in this quote:
“Many public, school, and academic libraries have decided to join the ‘Maker Movement.’
By joining the movement, libraries are providing their patrons with opportunities to
experience by building, constructing, developing, and working on projects with others in
12
Final Grant Proposal
13
their community and with those who share similar or mutual interests.” (University of
Illinois, 2014)
The goals of the “Maker Movement,” that is the movement that is dedicated to creating
more Maker Spaces, overlaps many of the goals that are put forth by libraries and informationrelated settings. These goals include providing innovative learning tools, diverse creative
outlets, and technologically modern equipment.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
This proposal strives to create a Maker Space at the Wise County Public Library
(WCPL), with the ultimate goal of providing unique opportunities for the Wise County area, as
well as connecting with teens and college age patrons and allowing the opportunity for
partnerships with local colleges and schools. The Maker Space will include several
workstations for creative outlets, such as two desktop 3-D printers, a laser cutter that engraves
and cuts, computers with art and music editing software installed, and various other tools and
resources for artistic endeavors.
By providing a Maker Space that encourages learning and creativity with tools that are
not readily available elsewhere in the area, the Maker Space be able to provide a very unique
learning tool for the youth of the community. Specific objectives include:

To create workstations with unique, creative tools, including 3-D printers, electronics kits,
and music editing software.
14

To create a collaboration between the library and schools in the area

To generate interest in the library within the teenage and college age demographic

APPROACH/METHODOLOGY
Implementation of this project will rely mostly on library staff that are assigned related
duties. A team leader will be assigned to oversee the project and make sure that each step of
the plan is implemented by its deadline. Duties will be added as additional job responsibilities.
A team of staff will be established to perform the following:

Needs assessment and sustainability research

Budget and financial reports/logging

Purchasing and maintaining of equipment

Contacting partners and maintaining a steady communication

Contacting contractors for installation of the Maker Space

Marketing and outreach coordinator
The grant seeks $20,000 for the completion of all tasks and activities laid out within this
project. Library staff will be assigned additional duties and therefore will not need to be paid via
extra funding. Contractors will be paid via grant funds.
Facilities for the Maker Space will be provided within the library itself. The most likely
area for this project is the current reference collection, which is in a large, prominent area of the
library, yet is rarely used. (Appendix B) In order to accommodate the Maker Space, the area
will need to have extra outlets, wiring, and furniture installed within this area.
The project strives to partner with local colleges, particularly the University of Virginia’s
College at Wise and Mountain Empire Community College, in order to reach the necessary
target audience of young adult and college students. A decline in young adult patronage at
WCPL has been on ongoing problem, with teen programming being eliminated entirely due to
low attendance. (Strange, personal interview, 2014) Bringing in this audience not only would
provide a boost in the library’s patronage, but would also help solidify the library’s place among
the younger generation, and in turn, help the library maintain its relevance into the future.
The Town of Wise has also strived to make the area into a “college town,” tying together
the schools with the community at large. UVA-Wise has often struggled to garner interest in
local events among college students. (Dunn, 2014) By creating a Maker Space targeted to this
age group, the library could prove to be beneficial to both the college and the town itself.
To recognize the partners’ efforts in this grant project, the library will hold joint events
that will prominently feature the colleges’ offerings and services in addition to the library.

Advertising and marketing (including all newspaper ads and flyers) will also feature the names
and contact information of the partners.
Partner responsibilities will include the following:

Marketing to their particular audiences (i.e. college students)

Providing transportation to the library

Surveying and measuring success
-
Staff and coordinators for this project include the following:

Library staff, including the staff of WCPL and the Lonesome Pine Regional Library

Contractors for installation of furniture and equipment

Contacts within local colleges, most notable the University of Virginia’s College at Wise
and Mountain Empire Community College

EVALUATION PROCESS
Success will be determined with a combination of methods. The hard statistics,
such as number of patrons served and number of times that computers and workstations
were accessed, will be able to show how much interest is generated and maintained over
time. The amount of supplies (such as 3-D printing cartridges) used within a given time
frame would also give an indication to the popularity of the service.
Surveys and informal feedback methods would also be a great way to get direct
information from the users. Formal surveys can be conducted either in person or via
websites such as Survey Monkey, which would provide measurable data to track the
continuing interest in the service.
Informal feedback is also valuable to consider. In a small town such as Wise,
word-of-mouth is one of the most useful promotion methods. By encouraging patrons to
spread the word, positive impacts can be made for the library and the community.
Monitoring interest generated by both the community and local organizations (such as
schools) would also give an indication as to the success of the Maker Space.
