(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The Braden River Public Library offers creative resources in their Makerspace program for students. 

The Makerspace is a program that encourages teenagers to express themselves through different forms of art.

Mustangs can learn to use materials such as a 3D printer, Virtual Reality (VR) headset or cricket machine, a button maker, 3D pens, sewing machines and other crafting tools such as painting sets and drawing tools.

Any Mustangs interested can visit the library from 5-7 p.m. on Mondays in Studio 70.

Makerspace Coordinator Molly Sanders said, “From VR to 3D printing to arts and crafts we have supplies and equipment to get creative at the library.”
