What is the Makerspace and where is it?

A Makerspace is a place to go to get the training, tools, and camaraderie to start turning ideas into physical things. Basically, we make stuff in the space.The MakerSpace is downstairs on the first floor, across from Web Alley and next to the computer classroom.

What's in the MakerSpace?

Technology

Software

Crafting

Tools

  • A Drillpress
  • A variety of hand tools: pliers, screwdrivers, hammer, etc.
  • An adjacent room houses 6 computers with a projector that can be used for lessons

For students:

Classes are free and advertised in our monthly newsletter. An instructor familiar with the topic of the class will be available during scheduled times. Information on what is necessary for class will be posted in the class advertisement.

Interested in Volunteering?

We are looking for teachers and monitors to help us with the Makerspace.

Teachers:

We are hoping local makers will be able to share their skills to help the maker community in Missoula grow through volunteering to teach classes. Do you have a skill you would like to teach? It can be anything from knowledge of chemistry or electronics to proficiency with a sewing machine or paint brush. If you make something, we want your help! Come share your expertise with the library’s Makerspace community.

Monitors:

Not sure if you want to teach a class? Come supervise the space instead. We want responsible individuals to monitor the Makerspace for a few hours a week. The more monitors we have, the more often the space can be open to the public.
