How does a creative activity in a public library introduce children to future roles in society as “inventors”? Based on video recordings of participants of a library’s inventor course, we examined how children (10–12 years old) and library educators negotiated the concept of inventing. Working with Goffman’s concept, we identified three “frames” that participants drew on to make sense of “inventing”. First, the children had a need for clarity about what counted as a new invention and could thus be framed as inventing. Second, the children framed the activity as a creative exploration of materials. Lastly, the children were introduced to ways of using storytelling to frame their inventions as solutions to a problem. These three approaches to making sense of making in a library setting are termed inventing as invention, inventing as exploration, and inventing as narrative. View this paper.
