This Makerspace focuses on books and literacy!!  Create your own pop-up books, try out a typewriter, tell your own stories, make a mini-book charm AND MORE!! 

What is a Makerspace? Makerspaces can be found all over the world in libraries, schools, and other public facilities. They are collaborative spaces, focused on exploration and creativity, rather than a specific set of tasks or learning outcomes. There is no one right way to do a Makerspace, and there are no failures when exploring one. The heart of Makerspace is the maker mindset of creating something out of nothing and exploring your own interests.

Our Makerspace is open to ALL, from children to adults. Children under 12 require adult supervision. Staff are on-site and available for ideas, questions and mentorship. Different tools (3D printer, sewing machines, electronics, button maker, coding robots) will be highlighted each session and may be available upon request. If you don't see something, ask!! Depending on availability and experience, we may be able to get it out for you.

Please do not attend if you are ill or experiencing any symptoms.  Patrons are encouraged to wear a mask if indoors.
