BLDG 61: Boulder Library Makerspace

Today’s the first day of Summer of Discovery at @boulderlibrary 🎉 To kick off this celebration of reading, we want to share some of our favorite maker reads, starting with the Art of Tinkering. This book is full of inspiring work from a wide variety of makers, tinkerers, and artists and has some great project ideas to spark your creativity (including projects you could work on in our space!)
Got a second? Help us better meet our community’s needs and let us know when you’d be most likely to visit and use our makerspaces. The survey link is posted in our story.
Open Studio is canceled today, May 29th, due to staff illness. Sorry folks!
