What is IdeaSpace?

CRRL has been a longtime pioneer of offering Maker technology to customers in branches, including 3D printers and scanners, drawing tablets, coding equipment, and sewing machines. Hundreds of library customers have undergone training to earn certification badges allowing them to independently use the technology. Library staff bring expertise in empowering technology exploration and learning to this new venture.

IdeaSpace is open 17 evening and weekend hours a week. The facility includes a sound booth for audio/video recording, drawing tablets, and 3D printers. Library staff provide access and training at no charge to the community. IdeaSpace is a part of the Canal Quarter Creative Maker District in downtown Fredericksburg.
