What is an ideaLAB?

ideaLABs are makerspaces: free community spaces to make things. Do you need to produce videos, create games, make music, or learn about electronics?  We aim to provide the tools and resources you need to make your projects happen. The tools available varies from lab to lab - please check the equipment and software lists to find the space that has what you need. The lab is free to anyone – no library card necessary!

Where are they and when are they open?

There are ideaLABs across the Denver Public Library system. Hours and equipment vary by location, but we're all currently closed to the public due to COVID-19.
