Studio 775, Lafayette Library's mini-makerspace, is a collaborative, community-driven space where users of all ages can learn to use new tech tools in creative ways. Located in the light-filled north end of the upper level, the mini-makerspace is a venue for workshops and independent projects.

The orientation course will introduce you to Studio 775 Makerspace equipment and Library policies, as well as giving you brief information about how to design for the equipment. You can do deeper exploration on each of the equipment types online, using your favorite search engine.
How to submit
Initially we are accepting only 3D print requests (in .STL format). Printing is free, but projects are limited by print time to 4-5 hours. That usually means a size fitting within a 6” cube, and smaller if it is a dense item. Projects will be printed with a single color of PLA filament, and can be painted with acrylic paints if you want different colors on the final project.
We look forward to expanding to accept Carvey and Cricut projects in the future. Feel free to contact us with further questions.
Until the Makerspace resumes drop-in hours, we do not have volunteer positions for adults. There may be seasonal volunteer options for teens before drop-in hours resume. Visit the Teen Team page for details.
