MakerSpace Located next to the Information Services desk, the MakerSpace is a place you can go to learn new skills and software, make cool stuff and customize your world. Use the space to play, tinker and experiment with media, design and electronics in an open and collaborative environment. There are no age limits here! A 10 year old can teach classes and a 70 year old can play with toys.

This is DIY learning at its best.

The MakerSpace is now open daily during regular
Central Resource Library

Call ahead and book up to three months in advance.
You can make use of the space two hours at a time!
