“West Lincoln Public Library’s MakerSpace is a place where people can come together to create with technology. We want our library users to learn new skills, think creatively, and be able to use our technology and equipment to come up with do-it-yourself solutions.”

“The MakerSpace allows anyone in the community to work creatively and collaboratively, using their imagination and technological innovation. Community members can now create custom clothing and jewelry, mugs and decals, and even unique toys such as jigsaw puzzles and game pieces. There are so many possibilities! At West Lincoln’s MakerSpace, Library users are able to explore their interests through hands-on, creative technologies.”
