Makerspace

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Portage Lake District Library is thrilled to launch a new Makerspace, where patrons can collaborate and explore creative learning. The Makerspace is a do-it-yourself studio, in partnership with Superior Fab Lab and will be open for reservations by appointment. We will begin by opening the space to use our Cricut machine. A selection of tools will also be available to be used on site and some tools will also be available for check out. Plans to offer classes are in the works and we will be seeking volunteers who are interested in sharing their expertise. Please fill out the form below if you wish to reserve time to use the Cricut machine and email mstanitis@pldl.org with any questions or if you interested in teaching a class. 

Cricut Machine

One of the exciting additions to our Makerspace is the Cricut machine. To learn more about the Cricut machine and learn how to operate it, follow this link: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1kanE9RPzo8d4w6G0scLWJs23jxhoHz5WkW_gj3T7d3Q/edit?usp=sharing

 

 

TECRE Button Makers

We have also recently added our two TECRE button makers, 2 1/4 inch and 1 1/2 inch to the Makerspace, to be used in-house only. Patrons will need to provide their own buttons.
