About

Located in the Steele Memorial Library, CCLD Makerspace is a place where people come 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.
