About the MakerLab @ Northgate

With the closing of Main Library in January 2017 for a two-year renovation, the MakerLab has relocated to Northgate Mall. The lab is open whenever there is a program scheduled.

Regularly-scheduled Open MakerDays allow for the community to explore the many tools the lab has to offer, including 3D printing, Cubelets, BeeBots, watercolor bot, and so much more. During MakerDays, patrons may bring in digital files to print on the 3D printer. For more information, see our 3D Printing page.
