Makerspace Expands at Santa Maria Public Library

 

The City of Santa Maria Public Library’s popular Makerspace is expanding to twice a week.  The creative program is now offered on Wednesdays from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at which times the Library will offer free instruction on use of machines and technology used in the makerspace program, as well as a separate project to complete independently.

 

On Saturdays, as before, the Library will continue to host free maker activities for all ages, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 pm. Mentoring will be provided, but makers are encouraged to work both independently and with other makers to explore new avenues of creativity.  Funding for this program is provided through a grant from the California Community College Chancellor’s office, in partnership with Allan Hancock College.

 

Join Library staff, volunteers, and Allan Hancock student interns in the Library’s Edwin and Jeanne Woods Learning Center, for a variety of projects each week, ranging from technology to crafting, and unlock your inner maker. 

 

Upcoming dates and projects may be viewed on the Library’s events calendar at www.cityofsantamaria.org/library.

 

The Library is located at 421 South McClelland Street. The Library’s hours are 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, and 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays.  The Library is closed on Sundays.

 

Questions may be directed to Library Youth Services, (805) 925-0994.
