Creation Station Maker Space

The Montgomery City Public Library hosted an open house for its new Creation Station maker space on March 31, 2022.  Patrons and community members were able to visit each piece of new equipment and see it in action.  The Creation Station is made up of a Janome digitalized sewing machine, two Cricut cutting machines, a heat press transfer machine, a digital camera, a virtual reality system, and a design computer with an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription.   There is also a photo and slide scanner available.  Raised garden beds are another available service through the Creation Station. 

 

Staff members explained how each piece of equipment works and presented samples of the many products that can be produced.  The Cricut machines and the HTC VIVE Pro virtual reality system were the most popular of the night.   ​​Creation Station training classes and reservations are available now. Call 573-564-8022 or email mcplmo@gmail.com for more information.

The Montgomery City Public Library received a $14,392.00 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.  With the grant money and donations, the Montgomery City Public Library established the Creation Station to inspire patrons and community members to learn a new skill, develop a hobby, make items to sell or give away,​or just have some creative fun!
