Eugene Public Library’s maker activities offer a wide variety of ways to develop skills, use tools, explore, invent, and create for success in school, work, art, and life. Opportunities are available for all ages and every level: hobbyist, student, and professional.
"Maker" refers to traditional tinkering, crafts, and do-it-yourself projects, plus high-tech additions including computers, electronics, robotics, and 3D design and printing.
The Library holds free maker workshops open to all, at all locations: Downtown, Bethel, and Sheldon. In addition, Library cardholders have access to limited-space workshops and independent project work in the Maker Hub and Media Lab on the Downtown Library’s 3rd floor. How to get a Library card
Eugene Public Library’s maker events and spaces are designed to meet a range of community needs including enhancing kids’ STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) education, providing positive activities for teens, and supporting adults’ career development and lifelong learning. Primary funding for the Maker Hub has been provided through fundraising by the Eugene Public Library Foundation.
