A Maker Lab is a space where people can learn and use new technologies and equipment they may not otherwise have access to. The Labs provide access to "clean" prototyping tools and are equipped with 3D printers, electronics stations, computer graphics tools, AV-to-digital image conversion stations, vinyl cutters and sewing machines. Meet and collaborate with friends or request help on a current or new project – the choice is yours. The Maker Labs provide open hours for patrons to visit and work on projects during regularly-scheduled open hours. Machines are first-come, first-served. Come tinker, collaborate, create and get your next project off the ground. The Maker Labs offer a variety of in-person programs, which support the understanding of its technologies and machinery, at both the Georgetown and Main Library locations. Starting in Fall 2023, Mini Maker Labs at three additional locations will be open to patrons. Children under the age of 12 will require parental supervision.
The Georgetown Maker Lab is being used by over 70 independent makers a month, and the Main library’s Maker Lab has close to 200 independent users monthly. We provide machine trainings that focus on learning new technology, and STEAM programs to inspire others to get.
