            The Mattapoisett library needs your help! We have been working hard on developing our makerspace to be a place of creation, innovation, and collaboration. We still have far to go, but it deserves a name! The Mattapoisett Library invites you to tell us your ideas.  If we like it, we will give that name to the makerspace and give you a prize. We ask for submissions from patrons of all ages. Please only submit one to three ideas. We are accepting submissions up until December 31.
