What’s New with the Makerspace?

The Library’s Makerspace has been up and running since our Grand Opening last October, and we want to give you an update on what’s going on there while giving a shout-out to thank our sponsors for their generosity in making it a reality. We’re having fun!

Over the past few months, we’ve added our first 3-D printer (a Lulzbot Mini) and a Cricut electronic cutting machine. We also now have our very own programmable Sphero BB-8 droid, for those of you who are Star Wars fans.

In addition, volunteers from our diverse tech community, including employees and students from Lockheed-Martin and CU-Boulder Engineering, have allowed us to offer open labs weekdays from 4:00 to 6:00, with Wednesdays reserved for teens. These sessions give visitors the opportunity to explore the Makerspace and all of its gadgets, while learning at their own pace.

In the coming weeks we’ll have classes on Arduino, jewelry making, Zentangle, and binary coding. You can check out the schedule on the Library’s calendar.
