Makerspace

Maker 101

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. 

While the Makerspaces at the Golden Triangle Branch and Northwest Branch libraries are temporarily closed, we invite you to participate in the virtual Makerspace programs!

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 Golden Triangle Branch and Northwest Branch. However, projects usually require only household items that many people already have on hand.

Join us for a monthly interview with guests from the ‘Maker Community’. Learn about their creative process, how they got their start, and how they hope to inspire the next generation of future makers. 

New videos premiere at 2 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month.

There is so much more to learn and do with Library maker programs!

A Makerspace Creative Lab is a creative, DIY place where people can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials. Makerspaces are as unique as the people they serve - artists, builders, crafters, graphic designers, engineers and even those who just tinker, are all “makers” in their own way. This gives them a space to explore new skills.

Makerspace Carts are not available until libraries return to full services.

 Makerspace Carts are designed for Kindergarten through 12th graders but are available to anyone interested in exploring science, technology, engineering, and math. Stop by a branch and visit a cart to use a 3D printer or to experiment with a STEM kit.
