What is it?

meta [met-uh]

  1. in the midst of, among, between
  2. implies community, participation, or change

MetaSpace 511 is a makerspace. It is a gathering place for all ages to create, invent, tinker, learn, explore, transform, and discover using a variety of tools and materials. 

A Space To Learn and Grow

The “Maker Movement” has been gaining momentum for years, especially in public libraries across the country. While our libraries once focused primarily on print materials, today their purpose has evolved toward creating places for broader educational needs, community engagement and collaboration.

Our new makerspace, MetaSpace 511, will achieve these goals by integrating technological advances with traditional materials, services, and values. It is a place for the community to come together to create, invent, and learn.

MetaSpace 511 is a natural fit for our library, where seeking knowledge and growth has been a core value for ages.  So stop in, tinker, learn something new.
