Library building

Keene Public Library's All Age Makerspace

What is a makerspace? It's a learning environment for people to connect with others and create meaningful projects, using technologies and other tools that might not be easily accessible. 

We offer training on how to use our Makerbot Replicator 2 in the Youth Department most Mondays at 5 p.m.

On Tuesdays at 6 p.m. in the Teen Area, young people and others with advance notice can learn to use the 3D printer and other equipment at the library's Open Hack. The Open Hack is not about gaining unauthorized access to a computer system but it's about making and using tools to arrive at creative solutions. Teens can learn about and gain experience using maker equipment, from Arduino microcontrollers and Microbits to 3D design programs and printing. 

  • Accucut Die Cutter and Dies

    The library has a collection of dies and a die cutting machine, which can be used by community members. To use the machine, please call the library at 603-352-0157 and reserve time with the machine. Users will be asked to bring their own paper or fabric to cut.

  • Bloxels

    This is an hands-on platform for kids to build, collaborate, and tell stories through video game creation. Kids can play fun games and channel their creative potential as they gain a greater understanding of important topics like design logic, and computer science and demonstrate their knowledge of history, science and mathematics and more through the games they create.

    Check our catalog and reserve a set of Bloxels.

  • Robots

    We have Finch and Sphero robots for checkout.

  • Soldering Tools coming soon!
