Makerspace

Libraries are centers of learning, creativity, community building and innovation for the digital age. Loudoun libraries are expanding opportunities for making, creating and learning with Makerspaces in three locations.

Makerspaces are open during regular library hours and can be used for free. Some small fees for supplies or printing may apply.

Customers of all ages may use Makerspaces. Children ages 10 and younger must be directly supervised by a parent or guardian at all times. Click here for the list of guidelines for using a Makerspace.
