Come learn about this special place for creators and inventors. Harry Krueger will be here to give us an introduction to Katy MakerSpace and all you can do there.

3D printers have arrived!

Our Innovation Lab 3D printers have arrived!  Both our MakerBot Replicator 2 and local company re:3D's printer, the Gigabot, both arrived recently, and we couldn't be more excited!  Each day we move ever closer to the Innovation Lab, where the public will be able to use and learn about creative technologies such as 3D printing.  We are eager for everyone to have access to this equipment and all it can do, but we ask for your patience as we try both to learn about these devices ourselves in order to help you learn as well and to finish construction on their permanent home in the Innovation Lab upstairs.  We hope for construction to begin very soon, so stay tuned!

3D Printer has arrived!

We are pleased to welcome a new addition to Freeman Branch Library!  Our first 3D printer, the MakerBot Replicator 2, arrived yesterday.  This is one of the first big steps that gets us a little closer to the Innovation Lab, a place where everyone can come and create with fun and exciting technology such as this.  We look forward to providing you with more updates on our progress with the lab and all of its components over the next several months.  Stay tuned for more as we move forward into the future at Freeman!

Innovation Lab - Floor Plan

We're very excited about the rough plan architects have put together for our Innovation Lab, which is projected for a summer or fall opening later this year.  The lab will have quite a few fascinating and engaging technologies to offer to all ages, and we look forward to making it available to you!  To see a larger imagine of this floor plan, select the document attached to this blog below.
