The Twin Lakes Library System works hard to be involved more with our patrons, City of Milledgeville, and PINES libraries across the state of Georgia.

What is a Makerspace?

Makerspaces are a new and emerging concept that provide a space for community members to get together to build and make things. Makerspaces around the state of Georgia focus on providing access to tools and equipment to do woodworking, robotics, 3D printing, computer coding, and sewing.

How can I get involved?

These spaces bring community members together to take classes, work on projects, and use equipment that would not be available in their homes. Many makerspaces have served as catalysts for new ideas, inventions, and businesses. Additionally. 3D printing offers so-called “rapid prototyping”, or the ability to quickly make a prototype of a new invention or design, without the need to re-tool or purchase new equipment.

Continue to check back with us for updates regarding the makerspace initiative.
