Our MakerSpace is an area that offers library patrons an opportunity to create intellectual and physical materials using resources such as computers, a 3-D printer, a laser-engraver, sewing machines, audio and video capture and editing tools, and traditional arts and crafts supplies.
Before one can use the MakerSpace equipment & become a “Maker” (patrons who are certified to use the equipment)

- Makers must complete & sign the Agreement & Waiver Form
- Makers under 13 must be accompanied by parent or guardian
- Use of the Glowforge Laser Engraver & 3D printer require 2 certification trainings (Online & In-Person)

The MakerSpace also offers the use of audio/video editing software and other programs through Adobe Creative Cloud. These programs are installed on the desktop computers in the MakerSpace. Please see a librarian in order to be logged on to a computer. A CZUR Professional Document Scanner is also available for use.
Be on the lookout for classes, training, and demonstrations. Check our online event calendar & follow us on social media for updates.
