BLDG 61: Boulder Library Makerspace

BLDG 61 is a free community workshop that provides maker education and technology to the public in a creative and inclusive environment.

Due to Covid-19, the makerspace is currently closed to the public. We are currently offering online programming and virtual access to select equipment.

BLDG 61 Event Calendar

Virtual Tool Access & Orientation

BLDG 61 is now providing virtual access to select tools in the makerspace, with operation of the equipment facilitated by an on-site staff member. Patrons will join a 10-minute online meeting to verify designs and confirm the desired product. Registration and further details can be found on our event calendar.

Some equipment registration requires prior attendance to a Tool Orientation workshop. BLDG 61 will be announcing virtual tool orientations on a regular schedule.

Material Drop-Off and Pickup for registered users can be found in the Main Library’s Lobby at 1001 Arapahoe Ave in Boulder. Detailed instructions will be provided after registration. All patrons must wear a face covering and observe social distancing guidelines while visiting the library.
