This is a fantastic event hosted by the city, and we are excited that we’ll be next door to welcome everyone who needs a break in our air-conditioned and dry library.

Sammy, a Library and a Makerspace

A couple of months ago our friend Sammy and her family approached the library. Inspired by the story of the Clear Lake City-County Freeman Branch Library helping their friend, Katelyn, and knowing we had started some 3D printing programs ourselves, Sammy’s family wondered if we could help. We approached our other friends, The Humble Makers, about helping Sammy. They were ecstatic to volunteer.

It was an opportunity for various members of the community to come together to share their knowledge and abilities, and we loved every second of it.
