One of the most exciting features of the renovated Central Library is the addition of a MakerSpace. The MakerSpace will be designed for expert makers and hobbyist crafters of all ages. We will be offering an array of instructor-led workshops, self-led making, and drop-in services.
Watch a GTV6 video about the Central Library renovation to learn more about maker spaces (starts at 4:44).
Staff have been visiting makerspaces throughout Los Angeles to explore successes upon which we can build our program. Here are some of the amenities that we are considering for our makerspace:
Software for design and animation
Industrial sewing machines
Laser cutting apparatus
Leather and textile crafting supplies
Specialty crafter tools
Jewelry making supplies and equipment
Paper painting supplies and equipment
Video production booth with cameras and accessories
Audio mixing and production equipment
Funding and giving opportunities for Glendale’s first innovative community space can be made through the Glendale Library Foundation.
