Thank you Linda Toivanen!

We are so grateful to you for coming up with the name for our new makerspace. Cheers to your creative spirit! 

Welcome to the Launch Pad!

*The library’s downstairs ‘blue’ room is being revitalized into a creative space for all ages! This space will house the library’s expanding collection of “things” to take home or use on site. Additional non-circulating equipment, including a Cricut, 3D printer, a die-cutter, and a computer station, are available for patrons by booking the space.*
To learn more about Meeting Room Bookings, click here! 

Capacity of the room will be 2 people or up to 9 if booked in conjunction with the adjacent Common Room.

*Use of some in-house equipment may require a one-time training course.
