Welcome to the East Troy Library Makespace webpage. To introduce the concept, a makerspace is any community operated space in which people with common interests—often in crafts, robotics, computers, woodworking, textiles arts, etc.—can come together to learn, collaborate, and create. The specific activities carried out in any particular makerspace depend on the needs of the particular community using the space. We are designing our Maker Space as a "general Maker Space," meaning that we will have the tools needed to do basic projects and explore various topic areas (e.g. electronics, textile arts), but we will not have the tools needed for in-depth projects (e.g. a woodworking project for which one needs access to large machines). There are four main components to this program.
