NBFPL Makerspace

This makerspace logo was designed, handcrafted, and generously donated by Candyce Valor.

The New Brunswick Free Public Library's very own makerspace is a place to create. It is a place to learn, to try new things or improve certain skills. It is a place to have fun and get to know other people. Makerspace programs are free and open to all (with the possible exception of age requirements).

The library's community room functions as the maker-space during event dates, unless otherwise noted. (*Regular programs were suspended until further notice as of March 12, 2020).
