classes

I don't understand why the Safety Class and most other events are only on the weekday. This new library looks awesome, but too bad I can't fully use it.

Classes

Hi Julia,

Thank you for letting us know you're interested in us offering classes on the weekends. We have been trying to find as many ways to make these spaces accessible to as many people as possible. One of the reasons we started off with classes during the weekdays at all different times was because we have a few more staff available on those days. We will try to get weekend classes up and available as soon as we can.

Makerspace

While this is intriguing, what exactly do you offer here? no list of machines or services provided seem to be on your site. What nifty machines?
