Maker Club Defined.

What do you do at Maker Club?
We make things! At each session, we’ll focus on a different skill area (cardboard, Perler beads, tape, mechanical engineering, and others!). Choose from suggested projects, or come up with your own. You can also get ideas for more things to make at home, work together on ideas, help brainstorm future Club projects, and show off your work.

Who is Maker Club for?
Children and teens ages 7 and up. With that in mind, children 10 and under will need help with the projects and must be accompanied by an adult. In Maker Club, we use real tools, some of which are sharp or hot – Maker Club projects are not appropriate for preschoolers.

Do I need to sign up for to be a part of Maker Club?
Nope! is just one way to share your work with others and ask questions. You don’t need to sign up if you don’t want to.

Do I need to come to every session, or stay for the whole session?
No, and no. You can come to as many or as few session as you want, and stay for a short time or for the whole two hours.

Bring your imagination and build a masterpiece at our monthly Lego Club.  Get inspired with a few stories and then construct a Lego creation.  We will display what you built in the library for all to see!  We have more than 60 pounds of Lego and megablok bricks.

We normally have two programs, for those ages 6 to 9, and for those ages 9 and up.
