What is a Makerspace?
Libraries have always been places for people to learn and create. A Makerspace is a physical extension of that idea. Specialized equipment is provided in this DIY space where people can gather to create, invent and learn.
The Olathe Public Library Makerspace equipment is funded in part by the Olathe Public Library Foundation & the Friends of the Library.
Below are some recommended resources and video tutorials to point you in the right direction.
| Sew: Sewing
|Strum: Ukuleles||Shoot: Green Screen
& Editing Software
|Scan: Photo Scanners|
The Makerspace is available for individuals, groups and library programs. An adult must accompany users under 6th grade at all times. All users are expected to read and follow the Makerspace policy, as well as the library code of behavior. The Makerspace is available during hours of operation, but will close 30 minutes prior to library closing.
The Makerspace may be used for drop-in video editing, photo editing, sewing or playing a ukulele without reserving the room if the Makerspace has not been reserved.
To create an audio or video recording or use the green screen a reservation is required. Reserve at least 24 hours in advance and up to a month in advance. Two-hour blocks available with extensions possible for another one-hour block.
Reserve the Makerspace here or through a staff member.
