The Story of the Fab Lab

The Jodie Knight Fab Lab

The Fab Lab is dedicated to the memory of Jodie Knight, our former Deputy Chief Librarian and Chief Librarian Designate, who passed away from cancer in 2020 at the age of 44.

Jodie loved the Library, and she was instrumental in driving many improvements to the service in recent years. The Fab Lab had long been a dream of hers. Jodie’s wish was for donations in her name to be made to the Library – any money donated in this way has gone into the development of this exciting new space.

Jodie is dearly missed by her friends and colleagues at the Library. We are all proud to have known her, and we feel sure that she too would be proud of this new chapter in the Library story.
