Makerspace Tuesdays are a chance for the artists, crafters, builders, and makers in our community to get together and try exciting new projects. Once a month (the 3rd Tuesday), the library offers a 10:00 am session and a 6:30 pm session to try your hand at new skills and techniques to create wonderful projects.
Space is limited for each session, so please enroll to ensure your spot. If you enroll, but find you are unable to attend, please unenroll yourself or call Mike Curtis at 630-553-4354 x120 to allow other patrons to fill your spot.
Below are our upcoming projects:
