Event

Makerspace

The winter village at the library needs a new model for the new building. We also need an ornament for the tree. Watch as we design and create these right in front of you with our 3D printer. Get ideas for your own design, then come back later and print a gift for your friends, your family, or yourself.

Registration is required. Classes are geared for adult learners, teens are allowed in to the makerspace under certain conditions.*

Interested in becoming certified to use makerspace tools? Check out our rules here or ask Daniel in class how you can become certified.

*Members that are over the age of 18 have access to our Makerspace resources. Members that are 16 or 17 have access if a parent or guardian has co-signed the policy, safety, and waiver agreements. Members that are at least 12 up to 15 years of age can only become members with a co-signer and can only use the equipment in the presence of a sponsoring member.

The Makerspace room is home to lots of expensive equipment and ongoing projects. This includes a variety of dangerous and fragile components, so we do not allow children younger than 12 into the Makerspace room (or other work area) unless a case-by-case exception is made by the Library Director or program coordinator. Members over 18 may check equipment out of the room to accomplish a task in the presence of children under 12 in a different area of the library. Classes in which children younger than 12 participate will be held in a separate room or area.

This program is funded (in part) by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services and Texas State Library and Archives Commission. (2018)
