What is IdeaSpace?

CRRL has been a longtime pioneer of offering Maker technology to customers. 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 29 evening and weekend hours a week. The facility includes a sound booth for audio/video recording, 3D printers, 3D scanner, laser cutter, sewing machines, serger, embroidery machine, drawing tablets, and video conversion equipment.
