NBFPL Makerspace

Makerspace
This makerspace logo was designed, handcrafted, and generously donated by Candyce Valor.

The New Brunswick Free Public Library's very own makerspace is a place to create. It is a place to learn, to try new things or improve certain skills. It is a place to have fun and get to know other people. Makerspace programs are free and open to all (with the possible exception of age requirements).

The library's community room functions as the maker-space during event dates, unless otherwise noted.


NJ Makers Day

Saturday March 23, from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m.

The NBFPL Makerspace will again be participating in New Jersey Makers Day, for its FIFTH year! The library's community room will be open with different Maker stations available throughout the afternoon. There will be sewing, button making, Perler bead crafts, bristlebots and other various STEAM activities.

This event is free and open to all ages, so bring the whole family and come create some fun!

New Jersey Makers Day is a celebration of maker culture across the Garden State. This all-ages event connects individuals with libraries, schools, businesses, and independent makerspaces that support making, tinkering, crafting, manufacturing, and STEM-based learning.
