Welcome to the Makery at Brandon!

Here at the Brandon Library, we're heading into 2020 with a mind for making. Introducing THE MAKERY, a casual, come-and-go space for Makerspace activities every Tuesday from 1:00 pm -5:00 pm!

Project themes for January include fake snow/snowmen, sensory bottles, and free reign with our button maker.

What is a Makerspace, exactly? You've probably heard the term before even if you're not sure what it means. The dictionary defines it as, "a place in which people with shared interests, especially in computing or technology, can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge."

Sounds pretty cool, right? 

In honor of the roll-out of The Makery, we've also set up a whole new display full of books on Makerspace tools and projects. Learn about the history of Makerspaces and how to build one as well as ideas and projects for kids and adults! 

Be sure to check out our Makerspace board in front of the circulation desk for some awesome take-and-make projects, including moon sand, sci-fi goggles, rock candy, and about a billion different kinds of slime.

Upload them to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and use #CMRLSBrandon so we can see what you've made!
