Space to Create and Make!

Our Creative and Maker Spaces are places for library patrons to make, create, design, build and play! Everyone is welcome; we ask that children be accompanied by an adult. Unless reserved for library programming, the Spaces are open during all of the branch's regular open hours.

There is no cost to use any of the technology. At this time consumable materials, except for printer paper, are available free of charge in limited quantities. Printer paper for the large format printer is $0.15 per foot of black and white, and $0.25 per foot of colour. You are welcome to bring your own materials for use with the button makers, Cricut and vinyl cutter; please verify compatibility with staff before use.  At this time patrons are unable to bring their own filament for use with the 3D printers.
