The MakerSpace opened July 2012 as a place for people to connect, invent and create. It’s a great way to use your Library, in addition to finding books and movies, working, viewing art, meeting friends and attending programs.Stop by and learn about the 3D printer, which prints physical objects from digital files. People of all ages have come to watch demonstrations of the printer, and to learn how to design and print their own creations! See the calendars below for all of the Maker events.

We need people to serve as greeters at our Maker Space. Volunteers will help manage the process of allowing patrons to participate in the creation of the two airplanes. If you are interested in volunteering to help out at the MakerSpace, contact Bill Derry at bderry [at] westportlibrary [dot] org.
All participants are asked to sign a waiver form before working in the Maker Space. The forms are at the Reference Desk, or can be downloaded below.
