The Creation Station is a community makerspace, where people with shared ideas and interests can gather to work on projects while sharing equipment and knowledge. If you put a wood shop, a metal shop, a computer lab, arts and crafts, electronics, and a bunch of tools all under one roof, you’d have a makerspace.
A perfect example of the many ways our community can work together, the Creation Station is a flexible workspace for individuals and small groups will share STEAM-related (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) supplies and equipment to bring their inventions and creations to life. It also includes worktables, equipment, and a variety of gadgets for DIY projects and activities. In addition, the space will be used to enhance and expand the Library’s existing programs for all ages with hands-on STEAM-related workshops, demonstrations, and projects.
