Fort Worth welcomes its first makerspace at the Northwest Branch! A makerspace is a creative, DIY place where people can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials. Makerspaces are as unique as the people they serve - artists, builders, crafters, graphic designers, engineers and even those who just tinker, are all “makers” in their own way. This gives them a space to explore new skills.
The Genealogy, History & Archives Unit of the Fort Worth Library has a large collection of family history data including federal census, books, and periodicals. The collection focuses on Texas and the South, but also includes a considerable amount of information on the Midwest and the original thirteen states. The Inside the Archives series aims to shed light on the vast collection.
