The Redwood City Makerspace is now open! A Makerspace is a collaborative workspace designed for making, learning, exploring, and sharing.

Makerspace in the Library

The Makerspace is 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 features a combination of high-tech tools (such as a 3D printer) and handcraft equipment (such as sewing machines), and provides 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. 

Less than $20,000 is left to raise to fully equip and furnish the space. Donate today! Leverage your donation by checking to see if your employer matches donations!

The Redwood City Library Foundation has created a Makerspace Community Advisory Group to help network and promote the project with the local community. If you have questions about this group, send email to rclf-ed@redwoodcity.org

 

The Redwood City Library Foundation has committed to raise funds to complete the project.
