Visit the library’s new Mobile Makerspace! A makerspace is a collaborative area with communal tools and supplies for making, learning, exploring, and sharing. The Ohrstrom Library Mobile Makerspace is housed on a large red bookshelf, currently located in room 205, where you will find the following tools and supplies: scissors, glue sticks, stamps, ink pads, scotch tape, duct tape, painters tape, markers, colored pencils, poster board, paper, cards, yarn, ribbon, pom-poms, googly eyes, paper bags, tissue paper, pipe cleaners, string, popsicle sticks, clay, felt, fabric, old magazines, and more!

In addition, a button maker, sticker printer, and Cricut are available for in-library use–just stop by the circulation desk to check these items out.

What can you make?  Here are just a few ideas: greeting cards, collage art, tissue paper flowers, posters, prom-posals, vision boards, paper garlands, hand-built clay creations, friendship bracelets, coasters, buttons, stickers, pom-poms, origami creations, snowflakes, bookmarks, and more.
