Maker Services:

Handheld Engraver: A Dremel rotary tool is available for use in-house.  A signed release of liability is required for using the tool.

Vinyl Cutting: The library has two Cricut machines and Easy Press for patrons to use in the library. A free account with Cricut Design Space is required. Patrons may provide their own materials or use the library’s collection of various colors and types of vinyl for patron use. A donation to cover the cost of the vinyl is requested. Additionally, users may use the library laptop to design, however, users may not install any additional fonts or templates. Therefore, it is recommended patrons bring their personal laptops to design and cut from.
