Makerspace in the Library

Construction for the Redwood City Makerspace has begun! A Makerspace is a collaborative workspace designed for making, learning, exploring, and sharing.

Makerspace in the Library

The Makerspace will be a powerful addition to our local community because it provides free universal access to tools and programming for entrepreneurs, tinkerers, artists, small business owners, and more.


The Makerspace will feature a combination of high-tech tools (such as a 3D printer) and handcraft equipment (such as sewing machines), and will provide a wide spectrum of activities, including digital crafts, traditional crafts, and various media. Usage will combine drop-in and structured programs led by library staff and volunteers. A coworking space for small local business or startup workers will include whiteboards, a lounge area, and large screen monitors for collaboration and videoconferencing. We anticipate a grand opening in October 2021.


Less than $100,000 is left to raise to fully equip and furnish the space. Donate today to ready the Makerspace for our grand opening! Leverage your donation by checking to see if your employer matches donations! Also, Check out our Amazon Wish List!
