Library opens door to the public again on Jan. 4, 2021

The Superior Public Library will open it’s doors to the public again on January 4th. Everyone will be required to wear masks when entering the building.

We will still close 1/2 hour early, so that we can wipe everything down.

The Innovation Studio is at the Superior Library and ready for public to use.

The studio is here and will be up and running starting Sept. 28th. We have a CNC router, laser cutter, vinyl cutter, embroidery machine, 3D printer, heat press, button maker and laminator, music kit, Lego robot, electronic kits, and a camera and green screen.

The possibilities are endless. Start thinking about Christmas, weddings, birthdays, or any other gift giving occasion. And don’t forget to make something for yourself. The only cost to you is materials that you buy from the studio. You can bring in your own materials if you want.
Once you are certified on a machine you may come and use it at anytime. We will have trainings set up or call and make arrangements.
We are requesting reservations (COVID), so we don’t have too many people waiting for the same machine, At times the room may be closed if we are working by ourselves.

You can call 402 879-4200 to make a reservation or if you have questions.
