Dorchester Creative Space

The Creative Space is a place 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 Creative Space is open during all of the Dorchester Library's open hours.

There is no cost to use the Creative Space technology. At this time consumable materials are available free of charge in limited quantities. You are welcome to bring your own materials for use with the button maker 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 printer.
