Located on the second level of the library, our MakerSpace is the creative corner of our community. From painting and other traditional crafts to cutting-edge printing and engraving, we offer a variety of tools for patrons of all ages to create, imagine, and flourish.
Our MakerSpace maintains two 3D printers: a LulzBot TAZ pro filament printer, and a Formlabs resin printer. Each printer uses a .stl file format for 3D models. The filament printer uses PLA filament, and the resin printer uses grey resin. The cost to print a model is $0.10 per gram of filament and a $2 base cost + $0.25 per milliliter of resin.
Arts and crafts just got easier thanks to our MakerSpace.
