Makerspace @ the Library
Come see our new space in the back of the library!

Makers are a collaborative community of all ages who share a passion for making things and who are engaged in experimentation, innovation and creativity.  Our Makerspace merges DIY, craft, art, electronics, programming, math, science and engineering into projects for both young people and their mentors.  Our goal is to support and grow the Maker movement in our local community through experimental play.  We aim to encourage and enable young people to try new things, learn by doing and build the confidence that comes from guided problem solving.  If you dream it, you can do it – at the public library!
