Welcome to the Virtual Makerspace

Welcome to our Virtual Makerspace where you will find resources to buy supplies, virtual creation tools, instructional classes, project ideas and a community art display. We have Virtual Makerspace classes happening every week, so please check the Library's Virtual Events calendar for current offerings. We also have resources for making face masks, how to print 3-D objects from home, and a virtual sketchpad tool so you can draw on our website right now. We hope that our Virtual Makerspace will provide the resources and tools to help you to keep learning, exploring and making!
