MakerSpace Rules

  • Members must respect MakerSpace equipment and each other. Anyone found not following the rules or using equipment in an unsafe way will be asked to leave.
  • An adult guardian will be required to leave their ID with a staff member when checking out equipment for a child. ID’s will be returned after the member has cleaned up their area, returned equipment to a staff member with all the pieces intact.
  • Members must know how to use an item correctly and safely before being allowed to use it. If you have a question, please ask us! If you hear a strange noise coming from a machine (ozobots, snap circuits, robotic arms), stop using it and alert a staff member.
  • Absolutely no food or drink is allowed in the MakerSpace area.
  • All equipment must stay in the MakerSpace area.The children’s book area is off limits for MakerSpace equipment.
  • Members must not touch the 3D printers under any circumstances. Only trained library staff may operate these machines. 3D printers get EXTREMELY hot (220℃!) so it’s very important that patrons (children and adults) never touch any part of the printer or open the front door.
  • The iPads and laptops are for MakerSpace use only, and will only be used to run certain necessary programs. If you need a computer for personal use, ask the front desk for a username and password for a patron computer.
  • Report all injuries–no matter how small–to a staff member IMMEDIATELY.
