What is the Makerspace?

The Makerspace is an exploratory community space and hub for art and technology in the library, where community members can create, design, tinker, invent, and craft. In the Makerspace, patrons have access to technologies, tools, and resources to learn a new hobby or skill, start a new business, or invent the next solution to today’s problems. It is an environment for experimentation, learning, and creative play for visitors of all ages.
