Makerspaces, Creative Labs & Programs

 

A makerspace is a creative, DIY place where people can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials.

Our Makerspace Creative Labs are DIY places where people can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials.  Each is stocked with 3D printers, Dash robots, Ozobots, craft supplies and other creator equipment. 

Creative Labs are open during regular hours at: 

Golden Triangle Library

Northwest Library

Reby Cary Youth Library

 

Thanks to the ongoing support of the Fort Worth Public Library Foundation and their donors, carts are available at every location.*

Each cart has a 3D printer that is free to use on a first-come-first-served basis during regular hours.  Ask our friendly staff to show you how to use the printer, design an item or find something online!

Maker 101 programs will present a new project each month. Log into YouTube and follow along the first Tuesday of the month, or view afterward when it fits your schedule!

A limited number of craft bags with the needed supplies will be available at every location. However, projects usually require only household items that many people already have on hand.
