Makerspaces are creative, DIY spaces that are purposefully-planned and designed for use by community members. These spaces bring together equipment, education and resources that provide opportunities for individuals to learn, create, design and invent. The sharing of space and tools provides individuals with the opportunity to learn and create works that might not otherwise be accessible.
What is in the Makerspace?
- 3D Printing
- U.S. Cutter MH Series Vinyl Cutter
- Photography Resources (Lighting, Greenscreen, etc)
- Arduino kits
- Raspberry Pi
- Little Bits & Snap Circuits
How can I use the Makerspace?
Most of the tools are available for immediate use, while others require a bit of training. But the best part is that all classes are free of charge. Vestavia Library staff members are working in the Makerspace during “Open Maker Labs” and will gladly demonstrate the use of the various tools. For other dates and times or to register for any upcoming classes, click the class link on the calendar below. To schedule a group session, call the Library at 205.978.0155.
We are thrilled to invite you to the Library to collaborate, create and make something great.
