Come One, Come All! The Maker’s Lab Can Now Be Used by the Public (by Appointment)

September 16th, 2016 by IPL Webmaster in Adults, Kids, Teens · No Comments ·

You asked for it, and the Irondequoit Public Library is now ready to begin booking appointments to use the Maker’s Lab. If you ever wanted to get your hands on a 3D Printer, Dremel tool, soldering iron, sewing machine, or embroidery machine, now’s your chance.

To make an appointment, please give us a call at 336-6060 and ask to speak to Matt. But please remember, all users of the Maker’s Lab must complete an in-person “certification” training before they can use any of the tools. Patrons who wish to use the 3D Printer must pay for any printing filament they use ($2.00 base price + $1.00 per meter). And patrons who wish to use the
sewing or embroidery machines must bring their own materials, but there is no charge for use.

Thanks to everyone that was able to join us for the Irondequoit Library’s 1st Birthday Party yesterday. But today we’d like to give a present to you…

The Irondequoit Library is happy to announce that the fee to pickup any Hold is now just 50 Cents! And don’t worry, if you’ve got a Forever Hold Card, you’ll be happy to know that each square now represents two free Holds, so each hole will be punched twice before it’s used up.
