Have a cute button design? Come press some. It's fun and gives your arms a bit of a workout. $0.25 a button.
The Cricut is a die-cutting machine (aka craft plotter or cutting machine). Think of it like a printer; you create an image or design on your computer and then send it to the machine where it then cuts out your design. The limit is your imagination.
Shirts, pillowcases, tote bags, anything you want to embroider, we've got you covered.
If you have a poster or other documents you need to keep safe, consider lamination. We have a poster width in the Life Hacks Makerspace, but a small letter size laminator at the front desk. Prices located in the Laminator Policy.
Have a pair of pants to hem? Maybe a cuddly toy project to make with your child? Grandma's quilt squares you need to put together? Come to the library, we've got the machine for you to complete any sewing task you may have.
3D printing has been a growing trend in the past few years, and we are proud to have a new program to introduce 3D printing to our community. We made our Monoprice 3D printer available to the public on September 1, 2018.
What is 3D printing?
Well, think of it like using a hot glue gun but not having to worry about shaky hands and missteps along the way. 3D printing is a more precise way to make prototype models and fun things. More importantly, 3D Printing is something that we as normal people can use to find solutions to everyday problems.
The Library’s 3D printer is available to the public to produce three-dimensional objects in plastic, printed from a design that is uploaded from a digital computer file supplied by the user.
