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 will bring expertise in empowering technology exploration and learning to this new venture.

For the first time ever through your library, you will be able to borrow technology to pursue your creative projects independently.

IdeaSpace will be open 30-35 evening and weekend hours a week. The facility will include a digital media lab for audio/video recording, drawing tablets, and 3D printers. Library staff will provide access and training at no charge to the community. IdeaSpace is a part of the Canal Quarter Creative Maker District in downtown Fredericksburg.

Customers will be able to borrow technology to pursue their own creative projects, including:

  • GoPros
  • Zoom Audio Recorders
  • 360 Video Cameras
  • Ring Lights
  • Novation Launchpads
  • Drawing Tablets
  • DJ Turntables
  • 4k Cameras

At IdeaSpace only, customers will have access to a variety of creative technology including:

  • Glowforge Laser Cutter
  • Ultimaker s5 3D Printer
  • Drawing Tablet Stations
