Makerspace

The Spanish Public Library is happy to announce that we now have a Makerspace installed in our library. Offerings include a Cricut machine, Button makers and a binding machine.

The MakerSpace is where you can explore the intersection between your creativity and new technologies. It’s a space for the community to discover and share skills, tools, equipment, and ideas, and to gather and learn together.

  • Access to equipment and tools maybe limited during times when we have more creators in our space!
  • You may bring your own materials (paper, fabric, etc.) for the Cricut machine, but they must be compatible with our equipment.
  • You can create files at the library using a public internet computer or in the MakerSpace. Some design software may be available for free to download and work on from home. You can prepare your project in advance and bring your file with you.
  • This is a discovery environment; we cannot guarantee the success and quality of a printed project as this is a trial and error process!
  • We aim to make most MakerSpace activities available at low or no cost to the user. Fees are applied on a cost recovery basis on some materials.
  • Fees are outlined in the following policy and use agreement
