Pratt Public Library presents: The Makerspace
A makerspace is a collaborative work space for making, learning, exploring & sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools. The maker mindset is one of creating something out of nothing & exploring your own interests. These spaces are also helping to prepare those who need the critical 21st century skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art & math (STEAM). Makerspaces are also fostering entrepreneurship & are being utilized as incubators for business startups. The Maker Zone @ Pratt Public Library is open to all ages Monday-Wednesday 10 am-5 pm. After hours crafting class are also held on many Tuesday nights. We have a variety of maker equipment including Circuit die cut machines, soldering iron, sewing machine, binding machine, jewelry making supplies, yarn, scrapbooking supplies, hot glue guns, cardboard, LEGOs & art supplies. Our staff is available to assist in creating, finding supplies & brainstorming.
