This is a case study report that explores the innovative ways in which St Botolph’s Waiting Room project in Colchester is contributing to economic wellbeing. While not involving a public library, there is much to be learned from this exciting approach to stimulating creativity, which includes a hack/maker space and a ‘give-get’ library.The report is an independent evaluation written by Shared Intelligence.
