What is a Makerspace?

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. Whether you are a hobbyist or a professional, young or old, we want to make a space for you! But your generosity is the key to MAKE IT HAPPEN! As you can see below, we have a few things in our Makerspace, but our Wish List is substantial!! Please consider making a donation TODAY to grow a new space in your Library in the Forest!! For more information about the Makerspace or to make a donation, please call 205.978.4632. We can’t wait to see you at the Library!
