The Makerspace

The Makerspace, located on the 2nd floor of the James E. Walker Library, offers knowledgeable staff who provide direction to appropriate resources and train users on the use of media applications and equipment. We offer unique facilities to enable the exploration for learning experiences, collaboration, and creative expression. The Makerspace is a welcoming space for users of all abilities, disciplines, levels and interests.
