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.

To learn more about which tools each makerspace offers, or when they are available for use, select one of the options below.

Make I at Library 21c
Make II at Library 21c
Before you visit our spaces, make sure to familiarize yourself with our Makerspace Policy. Our makerspaces each work a little differently, but you’ll need a few basic things to access all of them:
  • A valid PPLD library card
  • A signed Makerspace Use Agreement
  • Patrons must be at least 9 years of age to use the spaces.
  • Appropriate closed-toed shoes must be worn in the space. Certain machines may also require hair and any dangling items, like jewelry, to be secured.
  • Use of the makerspace machinery is typically free provided that you bring your own materials. 3D printing does have a cost for the filament used based on the final weight of the project. Staff reserve the right to deny the use of certain materials to be used with the machinery.
    • Some select materials are available for purchase in the spaces.
  • Patrons must check in with staff upon arrival in the spaces.


Hi Mikayla, thanks for contacting us. We provide Brother SE-400 combination sewing and embroidery machines at our 3 Makerspace locations, East Library, Library 21c, and Sand Creek Library. The Brother SE-400 machines have 4" x 4" embroidery areas. Please explore our website to locate makerspace hours, policies, and waivers. Thanks!

Hi Val, thanks for your question! At this time we do not have a long-arm quilting machine available in the makerspaces, but we do have a JUKI TL-2010Q, which is a high-performance straight stitch sewing and quilting machine. This machine is available at East Library.

I'm aware that Adobe Creative Cloud does not offer Encore for DVD authoring anymore.
On the Adobe website they have a work around for this and it simply states to download Premiere Pro CS6 which comes with the Encore software to make a DVD.
Is it possible to have the Premiere Pro CS6 and Encore CS6 just sitting on the machine for times when someone would like to make a DVD using Premiere Pro?
I hope this is something that will work. Thanks for taking the time to consider this for your library patrons who like making DVD's.

Hello, I will reach out to our IT department and see if this is a possibility. If you would like to follow up on the status of this, please call 719-531-6333 x1549. Thank you.

Can you convert vhs to usb flash drive?


With our converters, you cannot put the video only anything except a DVD. However, once you have the video on a DVD, you can use one of our computers to convert it to a file that can be stored on a USB drive.
