The library received a matching grant in the amount of $10,000 to create a Makerspace in the library. This will feature a variety of different equipment available for patron use, including sewing and embroidery machines, craft and art supplies, photography technologies, a button maker, vinyl to MP3 conversion technology, and much more. While housed in a dedicated room most of these items will be available for check out. Check availability HERE in our catalog.
To help orient patrons, we offer a series of pre-recorded monthly virtual programs presented by Adult Services Librarian, Matthew Day. Each program will feature a tour of the Makerspace collection followed by basic video instructions on the use of one item from that varied collection.
All programs are or will be pre-recorded and can be accessed on the library’s YouTube channel starting on the following dates:
Thursday, September 9: Button-Maker
Thursday, October 14: Cricut Machine
Thursday, November 4: A Short Introduction to Photoshop
