Allen County Public Library- Georgetown Maker Lab
The Georgetown Maker Lab is located in the old magazine room of the ACPL Georgetown Library. We offer Open Lab hours typically from 4-6pm Monday-Thursday and Saturdays from 3-5. These are times where the public can drop in to use equipment with assistance. Anyone who is 18 or older and is certified on a piece of equipment can come in any time the library is open to use the equipment, but the room is not staffed. Free classes are offered almost every night from 6-8 and cover topics ranging from 3D printing to Arduino to Intermediate Sewing, with more being added to the list every month. The classes do change every month and rotate to different days. After successfully completing a class a patron is considered to be certified. Equipment use is free, however there may be a small charge for materials (3D Printing is $1/hour). We have 3 3D printers, 2 sewing machines, an electronics workbench with soldering iron, AC/DC power supply, oscilloscope, and heat rework, a small CNC machine, Vinyl Cutter, laptops with Adobe Creative Cloud, iPads and more.
