The Maker Space & Studio

The Maker Space at the Farmington Main Library is a place where community members can gather to collaborate, create, learn and invent in a safe space using tools and technologies that they may not otherwise have access to.

The Studio is an experiential learning and media production lab. It is a public space where dreamers and creators can access high-quality equipment and software, whether they’re immersing themselves in virtual reality or producing a wide array of audiovisual media.

Who can use it?
