Library Makerspace

Welcome to the Library Makerspace

The delight of making. A student with dark skin on rising dimpled cheeks, a crinkled nose, and eyes closed tightly, smiles with delight while holding pompoms of red and gold strands of yarn, made at the Library Maker space. Music accompaniment is at the next button. A text description of audio follows at the button labelled Click for Audio alternative

What we do

The Laurier Library Makerspace is a group of people who keenly make things while learning and teaching hands-on skills across a wide variety of disciplines. Join us! We are keeping the effort going through the pandemic, staying connected, meeting up and teaching and inventing workshops.

This is your makerspace. We are most interested in helping makers make the things they want to make. We’re always happy to welcome newcomers with project ideas, works-in-progress or prospective makers who are just curious to learn a new skill.

Creative student volunteers from many different Laurier programs and groups animate the makerspace, supported by library staff member Darin White. Contact Darin with questions, aspirations, consultations around making and creating.
