makerspaces
Makerspaces are areas within our libraries where we offer access to tools, materials, and machines to help you bring your creative vision to life. In these makerspaces you'll find craft supplies like button makers, jewelcrafting tools, or sewing machines, while others house sophisticated fabrication machines like 3D printers or laser cutters.
studios
Our studios are your first stop for all things audiovisual, from equipment, to classes, to recording space. We have two studios in the district located at Library 21c and Sand Creek Library.

Some equipment in Creative Services can be used on a drop-in basis, while other machines require training in advance. We offer badging on the following machines:
  • Makerbot 3D Printers
  • Taz 3D Printers
  • Epilog Laser Laser Cutters
  • Shoptbot CNC
programs
Creative Services offers many awesome programs like photography, video editing, sewing, calligraphy and robotics.
