The Library is designing a new Makerspace at the Downtown Library. A makerspace is a community workspace where people with common creative interests, in computers, technology, science, art, electronic art, crafts, and sewing, can meet, socialize, and collaborate. The library will provide opportunities for people of all ages to create, experiment and collaborate in a self-directed hands-on learning environment.
