with the new service hours of our neighborhood libraries.
SEND US YOUR MakerSpace IDEAS
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.
Staff have been visiting makerspaces throughout Los Angeles to explore successes upon which we can build our program. Some of the amenities that we are considering are computers,
3D printers, 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, a video production booth with cameras and accessories, and audio mixing and production equipment.
Our only limitation is space so we want to ensure that the design conforms with what is most needed in our community. Help us build our MakerSpace! Share your ideas with Sharon Mann Garrett at email@example.com.
