Have Questions?
How can I use the music equipment?

Some of the musical equipment is for use by appointment only, so be sure to contact us to see what is available or to make an appointment.

Can anyone use Design Spot and Makerspace?

Makerspace and Tom Sanderson Design Spot are open to everyone. If you are younger than 18, you must be accompanied by an adult. See the complete policy for 3D printing for more details about makerspace usage.

Do any other locations besides Arcade and Central have a makerspace?

Not right now. Fair Oaks Library, South Natomas and Martin Luther King, Jr. Library do not have a makerspace, but do offer a 3D printer.
