Located at the back half of the CCL Depot for Creative Reuse, our Community Makerspace offers a safe location for children and adults to freely create, limited only by the bounds of their own creativity. Filled with reclaimed and reusable materials donated from the community, as well as an array of hands-on tools, the Community Makerspace is the perfect place for open-studios, private field trips, professional developments, team-building activities, volunteer service events, and more!
