Library Makerspace

Kristin and Tina work on the Glowforge laser engraver (sunglasses required for safety).

The Louisville Library Makerspace is a learning and making space. It's free to use our equipment and expertise. We will train you to use the equipment, just bring your own approved materials or purchase materials from us at cost.

Kids watch the 3D Printer at work. The Glowforge laser engraves an image on wood.
