MetaSpace 511 is a makerspace for the whole community. 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.

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.  


Let’s “Make” the future together!

MetaSpace 511 is open by appointment or during Open Maker Hours, makerspace events, and programs.
