Coming soon: Worcester Library MakerSpace

We are starting a MakerSpace in the Worcester Library to give our students the opportunity to create, invent, learn, grow and share. You will hear more about it in the coming weeks.

We are looking for donations to get our MakerSpace going: used legos, building toys, science kits, matchboxes/hot wheels, games, puzzles, marbles, toothpicks, popsicle sticks, wood shapes or small scraps, yarn, pencils, straws, construction paper, rulers, foil, wax paper, brads, duct tape, newspaper, paper towel tubes, card stock, large beads, perler beads, tinker toys, erector sets, broken toys, screwdrivers (to take apart the broken toys!) and storage bins
