New! Creative Studio Maker Space

The Maker Space is located on the Lower Level of the Library. Open to all patrons ages 13 and up. Supplies available for purchase or you may bring in your own.


About the Maker Space

The Creative Studio is a space for making, learning, and crafting. We encourage you (the patron) to explore projects and ideas on your own and then use the Creative Studio to transform your ideas into reality. The Creative Studio is reserved specifically for the use of creating. Patrons may use other areas in the Library to read, relax, or do other work not related to DIY projects.
