Meet your inner ‘maker’ at Beaufort County Library

The Island Packet has published an article about the CreationStation, by our own Melanie Florencio, Computer Lab Instructor at St. Helena.

From the article:

Next time you stop by your local library, check out books and then attend a free class on how to design and print out your own plastic toy.

Yes, you read that right.

The Beaufort County Library is the recipient of a $25,000 federal Library Services and Technology Act grant funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the State Library of South Carolina. Libraries across the nation are adding makerspaces to their facilities: places to create through mentorship, conversation, innovation, collaboration and tinkering. As a result, new innovative technology such as 3-D printers, a laser scanner, Arduino boards, Raspberry Pi computers, Bristle Bots and Little Bits robotics will be available for the public of Beaufort County to access freely.
