Maker Spaces at the Library
At Richmond Hill Public Library, we’re driven to help you create and connect in an environment that supports your big ideas and wildest dreams. Our Maker Spaces support learning in science, technology, engineering, art, and more through a host of Library services to help you build and design to your heart’s content.
Changes are coming to our Maker Space services!
Over the past few months, we've been collecting feedback from our community and our team on our Maker Space services at our branches. As a result, we'll be pausing our Maker Space services at Richmond Green and Oak Ridges branches over the summer as we update our spaces and how they operate. We thank you for your patience as we improve our services to support you better. Keep an eye out for new services to be revealed in September as we welcome you back to make, create and DIY!
What Can You Create?
Build, design and create to your imagination’s content by booking one of our Maker Space services, which currently include: 3D Printing, Fabric Printing, Audio/Video Conversion and Digitization, and iMac Computers. More services will be added in the months to come.
Use filament (plastic) to print guitar picks, small-scale models, cell phone holders, and other 3-dimensional models.
Bring a cotton T-shirt, tote bag or apron and add your custom design to it with our fabric printer.
Digital Conversion Station
Convert your cassettes, records, VHS videos, slides and photos into high-quality digital files.
This service is unavailable until early September.
iMac Creative Stations
iMacs provide access to audio and visual editing software (iMovie, GarageBand, Adobe Creative Suite) that will allow you to work on exciting digital media projects.
Reserve a three-hour workstation session by calling Central, Oak Ridges or Richmond Green. Drop-ins are welcome, but are dependent on availability.
