Greater Sudbury Public Library's 'Makerspace' has cool new tools
Crafters and innovators in Sudbury have a new workshop — and some cool new tools — at the main branch of the Greater Sudbury Public Library.
The Makerspace gives people a place to build and create with a range of tools including a 3-D printer, sewing machines and even Lego.
The space also includes a range of materials to be used with the tools, but Harding said people are also welcome to bring their own supplies so they can create what they want.
"This is sort of the evolution of libraries. People think that libraries are repositories of books," he said. "Libraries have always been about providing access to scarce resources."
The library is also looking at expanding the Makerspace in the future to include a workshop with proper ventilation for things such as carpentry.
Brian Harding joined Markus Schwabe on CBC Radio's Morning North to talk more about the Makerspace:
