Meet Your New Maker-in-Residence

Come work with our Maker-in-Residence during our regular hours on Fridays and on the last Sunday of each month from January through April.

Laura Spencer is an arts reporter at KCUR 89.3, the NPR affiliate in Kansas City, Missouri. She’s also covered a wide range of topics, from science to sports to business. Recent national stories include following a traveling musician into the green room at Knuckleheads for NPR’s Morning Edition, and tracking down stolen Andy Warhols for APM’s Marketplace. During her residency, she’s hopes to support the work of other audio enthusiasts.

The Black & Veatch MakerSpace at Johnson County Library is where Library patrons can meet up with the brightest minds of the maker movement. The Maker-in-Residence program, which offers a four-month residency to a local Maker of note, is made possible through a grant by Black & Veatch.
