Frequently Asked Questions
What IS a makerspace?
A makerspace is a place for students to expand and enhance their creativity through art, building, design, coding, etc. It is naturally in the library because we encourage students to explore all of their interests and discover who they are as people.
A makerspace also provides access to all students to materials they may not have at home, including legos, electronics, technology, specialty craft supplies, etc. Students frequently try something new in our makerspace or see other students creating something they have never seen before. It's a great opportunity to learn something new - through hands-on making instead of reading!
When can I use the makerspace?
Students are welcome to use the makerspace during Rock Time, or after school during Creativity Club or Open Make sessions. See a librarian with any questions.
What kinds of things do you have in the makerspace?
So many we can't list them all here! Whether you like to build with cardboard and hot glue, code and work with circuits, make art, or create with paper, we have all the tools and supplies you need to make your ideas a reality.
Is there a cost to use the makerspace?
No - everything we have is free for all students to use responsibly.
