Maker Equipment

We offer a variety of ways for makers to create at the Library. Our recent additions of modern technology, like the Cameo Silhouette and Glowforge, allow you to go beyond the limitations of traditional tools. In addition, we provide programs and specialty appointments that teach you how to use these new machines and dive into more complex projects.

Cameo Silhouette
Cameo SilhouetteThis precision cutter is perfect for adding that personal touch to your creations. Easily cut vinyl, cardstock, crepe paper, foam, fabric, and more materials. Use the Silhouette Studio® software to import your own fonts and images or create designs from scratch. Join a program or make an appointment to learn how to use this machine meant for the modern maker.

Make an Appointment
GlowforgeThe Glowforge is a laser cutting and engraving machine that allows you to make an endless variety of useful, beautiful, and practical things from unfinished wood. More materials will be available for you in the future. Set up a one-on-one appointment with our staff or attend a program to make your ideas a reality.

Accepted Materials
Patrons are welcome to bring in their own materials for use with our Glowforge. We strongly recommend using Proofgrade materials. Proofgrade materials are specifically cut and designed to work with a Glowforge, allowing for seamless operation and flawless engraving. These materials can be either ordered from Glowforge, or purchased at some craft supply stores.

Patrons are also able to bring in their own non-Proofgrade woods. Non-Proofgrade woods must:

• Be a plywood, veneer, or hardwood that is raw/unfinished. Please bring a receipt of purchased material.

• Have a thickness between 3/25" and 1/4" to be cut and be no thicker than 2" for engraving only.

• Be no larger than 12" x 20".
