Our Makerspaces are reopening in 2022

We are establishing creative spaces for the community to use at three of our local libraries:

  • Coburg
  • Brunswick
  • Glenroy

These Makerspaces are available for our community to learn new skills, connect with each other and have fun!

How do you imagine using these spaces?

We would like to

  • learn more about what makes you excited to use the spaces
  • show you what will be available at the spaces
  • improve the capacity of the Makerspaces to meet community need
  • create opportunities for community members to connect, create and upskill at their local library.
