The Makery at Carrier and Rose Libraries

Makerspaces are carved out places in a community for people to learn, tinker, craft, invent and discover with tools, materials and pro help in thinking out your project.  

We support students, faculty and staff in their endeavors, whether crafting for your hobby or using 3D design to support your research.

Click through the pages for offerings, or walk in anytime we're open.
