Lots going on at the Carlsbad Public Library

Employees at the Carlsbad Public Library requested active shooter training sessions in the wake of the  Aug. 28 mass shooting at the Clovis public library.

Carlsbad Public Library has some new projects in the works, and your input is needed.

Makerspace design: Currently, there is a quick 5-question survey available at the library to get community feedback for new makerspace offerings. According to library director Sarah Jones, “A makerspace is a collaborative workshop that supplies equipment and technology, such as 3D printers, soldering tools, industrial sewing machines, etc., for creative projects.”

If you want to learn a skill, try a new kind of DIY project, or need access to a piece of equipment that’s out of your price range, please take this opportunity to share your ideas and interests with the library by filling out the survey. Our makerspace will be the most effective for the largest number of community members if we get a lot of input from residents. The library is in the stage of gathering information for this project, and your ideas are welcome!
