Community Partners: SplatSpace
The DCL Makerspace is initially targeted to teens in our community. It includes a 3D Printer and scanner, a milling machine, vinyl/fabric cutter, poster printer and Arduino kits. In conjunction with Durham’s local non-profit hacker space, SplatSpace, the library is teaching teens designing and building concepts for electronic devices and desktop fabrication both additive and subtractive
After the Summer Reading Program this year, the Makerspace’s 3D printer will be made available to the community. Our goal is to engage our community in the spirit of “making” by offering an open and inviting space for them to design and create.
The goal of the DCL Makerspace is an informal space provided to teach new skills, allow creation and sharing of ideas, make community connections, and give access to current technologies that would otherwise be unattainable by our patrons: durhamcountylibrary.org/2014/03/teen-tech-week.
