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 has been revitalized into a creative space for all ages! This space houses 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, a sewing machine, and a computer station, are available for patrons by booking the space.*

Capacity of the room is 3 people, or up to 18 if booked in conjunction with the adjacent Common Room.
*Use of some in-house equipment may require a one-time training course.

You can borrow:
- Portable tech & media equipment, such as microphones, cameras, iPads, laptops, wifi hotspots and ereaders.
- Museum, gallery and parks passes
- Kill a Watt Meter
- Hand drum
To access these items, reserve them in our online catalogue!
