Certified Maker Time
Makerspace - Certified members only
A registration only time for members who have taken the makerspace orientation and have been certified to explore specific makerspace tools and equipment for their projects.
The library will be providing access to a variety of Makerspace tools and equipment to our members. In a casual setting, members who have attended Makerspace orientation and have been certified on specific tools and equipment at our library can explore using the items for their own projects.
Interested in becoming certified to use makerspace tools? Check out our rules here or ask Daniel in an appointment 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)
