Makerspaces are areas within our libraries where we offer access to tools, materials, and machines to help you bring your creative vision to life. In these makerspaces you'll find craft supplies like button makers, jewelcrafting tools, or sewing machines, while others house sophisticated fabrication machines like 3D printers or laser cutters.

To learn more about which tools each makerspace offers, or when they are available for use, select one of the options below.

Make at East
Make at Sand Creek
Make I at Library 21c
Make II at Library 21c
Before you visit our spaces, make sure to familiarize yourself with our Makerspace Policy. Our makerspaces each work a little differently, but you’ll need a few basic things to access all of them:
  • A valid PPLD library card
  • A signed Makerspace Use Agreement
  • Patrons must be at least 9 years of age to use the spaces.
  • Appropriate closed-toed shoes must be worn in the space. Certain machines may also require hair and any dangling items, like jewelry, to be secured.
  • Use of the makerspace machinery is typically free provided that you bring your own materials. 3D printing does have a cost for the filament used based on the final weight of the project. Staff reserve the right to deny the use of certain materials to be used with the machinery.
    • Some select materials are available for purchase in the spaces.
  • Patrons must check in with staff upon arrival in the spaces.

I'd like to register my daughter, Gabby (age 9), for the Make Your own Stocking/Ornament on Dec. 10 but I don't see it listed here yet. Please advise.

Thank you!

If you click on the calendar view at the top of this page, you can go to December 10 and see your program. Click on the program and the registration will come up. I hope this helps!

So I was trying to register for the 3d modeling class but when I clicked on the title it did not have the registration information please help.

Hi Noah,

This program does not require registration, so you can just show up.

Have a great day!

I saw a class on Zentangle which was to be taught by the Maker in residence. I thought it was on Sunday September 3, but I cannot find it now. Did I miss it? Thank you.

This is exciting. I have an idea to teach a digital composition and music production class. How would I go about seeking approval to create such a class? I applied to volunteer to teach such a class earlier in the year at the East library and never heard back

Hello, I've enjoyed using the 3D printers to make and build for many things, but some envisioned projects need a flex material. I'm aware of TPU and other flex 3D printer material, is there a possibility to add a flex material to the 3D printers one day?

Hello,

Thank you for your comment. We will keep this in mind for possibilities for future expansion of services. What we can add will depend on the cost of the materials and hardware, as well as the complexity of the process.

Hi! Is there any way you could add some badging classes for the laser engraver and the 3D printer? I see only 2 in the next 2 months and they are both filled with a wait list. Thank you!
