Have you ever wished for a place to go to work on creative projects or a place to learn a new skill? If so, you’re in luck! The Dubuque Senior Library has announced it will be making a Makerspace available to students in the near future.

The Makerspace is being made possible by a $1,000 donation from The John and Rebecca Burgart Fund for Dubuque Public School Libraries and a $3,380 donation from the Dubuque Senior Education Foundation.

Last spring, students were surveyed on what items they would like available to them in the Makerspace. Purchases made include: a green screen for making and editing movies, a Cuicut machine, a sewing and embroidering machine, two three-dimensional printers, and several coding software options.

Once open, the Makerspace will be available for student use during school hours in the Library. There will be a fee for consumable items used (ie: filament for the three-dimensional printer) in order to keep the Makerspace stocked with supplies for student projects.

In the meantime, Rams can stop by the Carnegie Stout Public Library to check out their Makerspace as well!

To outfit the space, the Library staff is looking for donations of yarn, thread, and material for sewing, knitting, and embroidery to complete the Makerspace. If you have any of these items, bring them to school and take them to the Library staff.
