Kitchen and Catering CollectionDue to Covid-19, checkout of kitchen and catering items are currently suspended.
How to works:
The library provides access to all of the machines and the catalog of accessories free of charge during library hours. Patrons will need to provide their own project materials such as paper, markers, cutting mats and other craft supplies.
Due to staff schedules, we ask that patrons call in advance to ensure availability if training assistance is needed. Machine training is unavailable on Saturdays.
Patrons must be 12 years of age or older to use the Maker Space. Library cards are required to use the machines. Dies must be checked out at the circulation desk before use.
All patrons must familiarize themselves with the operation and best practices of the machines prior to beginning their projects. Video tutorials, instructions and user manuals are all available here on our website by clicking on the links above. Before using the space, patrons will need to complete a form stating that they understand how to properly use the equipment after which they will be presented with a certification card.
Library staff is available for in person training and troubleshooting as needed; however, we request patrons enter the space ready and willing to learn. Library staff will not be able to complete projects on a patron’s behalf.
Due to Covid-19, use of the Maker Space is limited to one person/household group at a time. Machines and accessories will be sanitized to the best of staff capabilities after patron use.
