Woburn Public Library will be closed on Wednesday, June 19th in observance of Juneteenth.

The Woburn Public Library Maker Space will be open to Makers of all levels of ability on April 23rd from 12:30pm to 3pm.

Come with a project in progress, a project idea, or an open mind. You’ll have access to much of our equipment and design software.

The 3D printers will be available-you could walk out with a cool Pikachu figurine matching the teen librarian’s. If you’re in the middle of a project, but you need to stick two parts together, come use our hot glue guns. Have a need for intricate paper cutting, but aren’t thrilled by the idea of painstakingly using scissors? we have a Cricut!

Fiber artists of all kinds may enjoy using our sewing machines or fiber art supplies. We’ll have needles, embroidery hoops, embroidery cloth, and embroidery floss available.

If you’re interested in using our laptops to work on project designs, we have laptops set up with Tinkercad for designing 3D models, Cricut Design Space for use with our Cricut, and Corel Draw which can be used for artistic endeavors as well as designing for our laser cutter. Note: the laser cutter will NOT be open for use at this open office hours session.

While we have various equipment available, you’ll need to bring your own paper, cloth, thread or other supplies for use with the Cricut and sewing machines. The library supplies filament at the cost of $0.10/gram, but Makers are allowed to bring filament from home.

Staff will be present to ensure safe use of the machines and offer advice where possible, but there is no specific training or classes beinf offered. We’re happy to help set up beginners with tutorials or beginner guides and patterns, but staff members may not be skilled in the use of every piece of equipment or crafting material.

This is an opportunity to use our equipment, but also an opportunity to meet other creative individuals in the Woburn Public Library community!

Hope to see you there!
