Welcome to our Makerspaces! 


Unlock your creativity and bring your ideas to life with a range of high-tech equipment and tools. We offer a variety of cutting-edge resources — including a CNC machine, laser engraver, large-format printer, and embroidery machine — to help you turn your dreams into reality.
Our CNC machine is perfect for creating intricate designs on wood. With computer-controlled precision, this machine can produce detailed cuts and designs, making it an ideal tool for artists, engineers, and designers.   
   
Our laser engraver is another popular tool. With this high-powered laser, you can easily etch detailed designs onto a range of surfaces such as wood, acrylic, glass, metal and leather. Library staff will help you determine if your surface is safe to cut. Create custom gifts, promotional items, and personalized designs.     
   
Our large-format printer is perfect for creating high-quality, large-scale prints. Whether you need to print a poster, banner, or other visual display, this printer can produce vibrant, eye-catching results. Library staff will help you format your project for the best result.

Our embroidery machine is perfect for anyone interested in creating custom-designed apparel or accessories. With a variety of stitch options and thread colors, you can easily create intricate designs on a range of fabrics.   

Buttonmakers and comb binders are also available. The library offers supplies for these two resources at a low cost. Ask staff for more information. 
   
At our makerspaces, we foster creativity, experimentation, and collaboration. Whether you're a seasoned DIY enthusiast or a newcomer to the world of makerspaces, our equipment and resources are here to help you bring your ideas to life.
