You probably already know that the library now has Maker Labs at the Main and Georgetown libraries but there are also a lot of maker and learning programs happening throughout the ACPL system. The online events calendar offers a full listing and is also available on the ACPL mobile app (for iOS or Android).
You can learn all sorts of new skills and then head to the maker labs to build. Use the library's 3D printers to prototype your inventions ($1/hour) or use the soldering stations to create electronic jewelry like in the video above. Sewing machines are even available. You'll need to bring your own electronic components or fabric.
If you'd like to become a maker but don't know how to get started, here are a few free workshops that you could use to build your skills.
