Makerspaces and Tech Labs

Come MAKE with us at the library! Our Makerspaces and Tech Labs offer classes in digital media, paper and textile arts, electronics and fabrication, as well as open access time. Open Access time allows patrons to explore and experiment as they independently work on projects of their choosing. Self-guided online tutorials are available for most applications.

Space is limited and many of our programs do require registration. To sign up, visit our Calendar of Events and click on the specific class and date  of the program you want to attend.

Be sure to take a 3d Virtual Tour using Google StreetView of our 3rd floor to see the Makerspace!
