The Maker Studio

Welcome

The Maker Studio

The Maker Studio is a Do It Yourself design space located in the Delaware Main Library. We provide the tools and knowledge to get you up and running on any of our equipment. Specialized equipment includes 3D printers, a vinyl cutter, laser cutter/engraver, sewing machines and more available for use by the public during open lab hours. Computers with design software are also available.

In 2022 the Maker Studio is transitioning to a DIY space. Staff will train you how to run all the equipment so you can make your design ideas a reality, then continue independently with future projects. To aid in your learning, pick up the Maker Studio Passport, a guide to the classes and skills you’ll need to do anything and everything within the space – and earn your Golden Library Card!

Hours

  • Friday: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
