    Colleen Graves is a school librarian at Lamar Middle School in Flower Mound, Texas.  Her first task as librarian was to transform her thirty-year-old traditional library space into a learning commons.  She became obsessed with the library as a gigantic makerspace and started instituting maker workshops with students in 2013.  She blogs at http://colleengraves.podbean.com/ and is an active leader of professional development in Lewisville ISD and the DFW metroplex. Recently, she published “Learning Commons on a Dime” in School Library Monthly and “Teens Guide Makerspace Makeover” in Knowledge Quest.  Add her to your PLN on Twitter @lamar_library.
