Makerspace

Bring your ideas to life at the Library’s new creative community space! With a range of high- and low-tech maker tools and a variety of programs for all ages, the Makerspace is your passport to summer adventure.

A grant to kickstart this project was generously provided by the Northwest CT Community Foundation Khurshed Bhumgara Fund. We sincerely appreciate their support!
