Maker Stations

3D Printer Ultimaker 2+ with samplesWestlake Porter Public Library has several Maker Stations you can use for free! Just ask at the Reference Desk for what you'd like to use (or call 440-250-5462 to set up an appointment). You’re guaranteed two hours with the equipment (and four hours with the VHS to DVD converter), but if no one else is signed up after you, you may continue to use it. Bring a USB flash drive or SD card with you (no larger than 32 GB) to save your work.

Library staff will not help you create your project, but they will point you in the right direction to online or paper help. (Don’t forget searching!)

The following Maker Stations with associated tools are available for use at WPPL. Just ask! You can also find more information on the STEAM blog.
