Reimagine the library as a space to create!
Welcome to the Eagle Valley Library District’s Spark Studio, a makerspace designed for learning, exploring, and creating.
Experiential learning, or learning by doing, is what this makerspace and tools are all about. Generally, we want you to try and figure things out on your own through trial and error, watching video tutorials, and reading what others have tried. If you are all out of options though, have tried these tools and are still completely stuck, we will do our best to get you over that hurdle. Please fill out our Spark Studio Help Request, describing your request for help in detail and a staff member best suited to assist you will contact you to assist you. Please understand that not all staff members are experts and you will not be able to get assistance without scheduling a time with a Librarian. We are learning as we go just as you are!
Before you begin, you must sign the Release Waiver.
