About the Department

Welcome to the Main Library’s MakerSpace. A makerspace is a place where creative people can gather, create, invent, and learn. Customers of the Library have access to 3D printers, audio and visual equipment, laser cutters and engravers, sewing machines, cameras and other hardware and software tools that they can use for free to create pretty much anything they can imagine. (Some machines require additional materials which may be purchased for a fee.)
