Opening October 2020!

Come make things in The Forge, the Library’s new makerspace!  Create, invent, and learn in our new space designed for hands-on creativity.  Spend some time making jewelry, working on a sewing project, or making something cool with our new 3D printer. Or just stop in for a few minutes to color a picture or play with some Legos. The Forge is here for you to use and to make your own!

Help us create the Forge. Let’s make things together!

Please consider helping us stock The Forge with supplies.  To contribute, choose from our wish list of items!  These can be purchased via our Amazon Wish List or from any other store. In addition to these items, we are happy to accept any additional arts and crafts materials, Legos, or general supplies.  Please contact Leah Gentry (262-532-8925) with questions.
