The makerspace will offer opportunities for hands-on experiential learning, with technology and creative equipment and supplies for use. Planned equipment includes laser cutters, 3D printers, embroidery, quilting and sewing machines, and computers for coding and programming small robots. A professional-grade commercial kitchen will also be included in the makerspace. The makerspace will allow entrepreneurs, small businesses, hobbyists and students to use equipment they may not have the resources or space to own. Wheeling, Elk Grove, Northbrook, Barrington, Elmhurst, Naperville, Winnetka, Lake Zurich, Aurora, Algonquin and Grayslake libraries all have successful makerspaces.
