Curry Public Library

Tech lab & makerspace

What is the Tech Lab and how is it used?

The tech lab at Curry Public Library is a space for imagineering, designing, conceptualizing, and light digital manufacturing. The tech lab features four light manufacturing tools including a laser cutter/engraver, 3D printer, 3D scanner, and a Cricut (vinyl and other materials) digital cutter. The lab is also supported by re-configurable work stations, in-floor and ceiling power, and laptop workstations with design and digital manufacturing software. The goal of the tech lab is to encourage and facilitate creative design and problem solving while teaching users how to go from an idea to practical working prototype. The tech lab coordinator is available by appointment to help you become comfortable and self-sufficient with using the four digital manufacturing tools or design software.
