About

Located in the Steele Memorial Library, CCLD Makerspace is a place where people come together to create and learn about technology and crafts from professionals and capable people within our community. CCLD Makerspace is made up of three labs: the Tinker Lab, the Digital Media Lab, and the Technology Training Lab.

Our Mission

    • To promote the free and selfless giving of knowledge.
    • To encourage the members of the community to teach and learn without reservation.
    • To maintain a space the community can be proud of.
    • To develop programs that speak to the curiosity of students and citizens.
    • To give experienced people every opportunity to pass on their crafts as mentors.
    • To stay true to the impetus of the library model by proliferating ideas and imagination as much as we are able.
    • To use knowledge to better ourselves, our town, our region, and our world.
    • To nurture the creative spirit in people without prejudice or discrimination.
    • To know that mistakes and setbacks are intrinsic to the process of learning.
    • To actively promote projects that invoke multiple disciplines.
    • To tinker, teach, encourage, create, learn, and above all else, to make.
