Maker Monday's at GP Library

I am really excited to announce our new Maker Monday program. Each Monday from 4-5 pm, we will explore a variety of S.T.E.M. projects that have been generously purchased by Port Houston. Thanks to community partners like Port Houston we are able to provide our customers with 21st century life skills like this. We will design with K’Nex build sets, complete basic circuits, and program robots. These are just a few of the things we are going to be doing, we hope to keep our makerspace growing!

Have a FOMO? You Probably Should.

FOMO, as I’m sure you all know, is a Fear of Missing Out. It generally refers to the fear that people are going to do something fun without you and afflicts pretty much everyone at some point. If you’ve ever been worried about not being at a game, missing dinner, or have been stressed about what’s happening at home without you, you’ve had FOMO. So, let me tell you right now, if you don’t plan on going to the Evelyn Meador Branch Library this week, you are definitely MO’ing (Missing Out, if that’s not clear).

"Making" Progress at HCPL

Maker Central

Many visitors at the recent Houston Maker Faire were surprised and excited to learn that more HCPL branch locations are offering 3D printers and laser cutters for public use.  You may have noticed the "Maker Central" banner on the main library webpage - this is the name we've given to our expanding services.  By following the link from the main page, you can learn more about the machines available for use including 3D printers, laser cutters, a CNC mill and vinyl cutters.  You can sign up for a Maker Central account and start earning badges to gain use privileges by attending orientation classes for these tools.
