What is The Wave Makerspace?
The Wave Makerspace was established in the summer of 2019, alongside the Teen Room with LSTA grant and Town of Marshfield Funds. Some equipment in The Wave has been purchased with the support of LSTA grant and Ventress Memorial Library Trust funds. The Wave is a Connected Learning space, meaning we provide opportunities for youth and adults to explore creative interests and projects with our Makerspace tools as an informal community of engaged learners, tinkerers, and makers.
Makerspace programs have been in place since before The Wave was established. While local teens have utilized makerspace equipment since then, the pandemic and staffing restraints have made it difficult to move beyond programming. Now we are excited to move onto our drop-in hours phase, where youth and adults (ages 12+) are welcome to come in during Open hours and, with the guidance of a trained teen volunteer or the Teen Services & Makerspace Librarian, explore the possibilities and use the available equipment.
We are excited to grow into this next phase for our community as we explore what is possible at the Ventress Memorial Library in The Wave Makerspace.
