The Keene Public Library will reopen the Kingsbury Makerspace on Tuesday, Oct. 4, with new hours and safety protocols.
The space, which includes a 3D printer, laser cutter and CNC machine, will be open Tuesdays and Wednesdays 3:30 to 7:45 p.m., Thursdays 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., and Saturdays noon to 2:45 p.m.
Makerspace services will increase in the coming weeks to include classes and workshops held primarily on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. To find upcoming classes and workshops, go to the library’s calendar at https://keenepubliclibrary.evanced.info/signup/Calendar.
Before using the Kingsbury Makerspace, visitors must complete a maker agreement form and, in some cases, participate in mandatory safety training. Makers under age 10 or minors whose behavior requires supervision must be with their parents or caregivers in the makerspace at times.
Occupancy is limited to three users. The library recommends making reservations for specific pieces of equipment such as the 3D printer, laser cutter and engraver, Carvey CNC machine, and vinyl cutter.
