Join the Tuscarawas County Public Library System’s Main Library for dinner and a detailed explanation of equipment in its mini MakerSpaces. Emerging Technology Associate Virginia Wright and Information Technology Manager Richard Wiltrout will join forces to introduce the library’s new mini MakerSpace to the public.

“We are excited to formally introduce our mini Makerspaces,” said Wiltrout. “These spaces that will be available at all of our locations are creative, do-it-yourself spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn.”

Wiltrout said whether you are a seasoned DIYer, you are looking for scrapbooking or locker decoration ideas, or you want to preserve home video memories, these Meet Our MakerSpace programs are designed to introduce you to the tools the library will offer and answer your questions.
