Make Something This Summer in ideaLAB!

Summer is here, and the SM Energy ideaLAB wants to help you spend it making! Throughout the summer, ideaLAB will have normal open lab hours: Monday and Tuesday: 3 - 8 pm, Wednesday: 3 - 6 pm, Thursday: 1 - 6 pm, Friday: 3 - 6 pm, Saturday and Sunday: 1 - 5 pm, but we’re also trying out some special all-ages opportunities for you to engage with other members of the community that share your same passion, and work on projects in a collaborative, social environment. We’ve specifically scheduled these events in the evening after parking meters have shut off, so street parking around the library is free!

Monday evenings 6:30 pm - 8 pm throughout the summer, the ideaLAB will host Maker Mondays, your time to meet and connect with other makers in the library's makerspace. Each week will have a creative theme - bring your projects and ideas. While not a formal class, these evenings will be open-ended and driven by your own interests, with chances to interact with other makers and create something unique

These evenings will be open-ended and driven by your interests, not a formalized class where everyone will make the same project. Here’s what will be coming up:

Additionally, starting Tuesday, June 19, we’re starting up a Tuesday evening Sewing Circle that will run Tuesdays 6:30 pm - 8 pm in ideaLAB. Bring your sewing project and join other crafters in conversation. All fiber arts crafts and skill levels are welcome.
