Innovation Pointe, located in MidPointe Library West Chester, is a public makerspace filled with the tools and technology to help you create, make, and innovate!
What is a Makerspace?
A library makerspace is a “Do-it-Yourself” learning center where patrons of any experience level gain practical skills through hands-on learning. Each library makerspace is uniquely designed and resourced based on community needs, interests, and staff capabilities. Patrons can utilize library equipment and software to turn their creative ideas into physical objects to share with their friends, family and community. Library makerspaces offer access to the building blocks of creative making. Innovation Pointe provides education and program experiences to empower patrons in making full use of makerspace resources through skill-building. Innovation Pointe fulfills MidPointe Library’s mission of, “Enriching our community through access and experience,” by providing access to a variety of tools and equipment that allow patrons to make, explore, and tinker.
How Does Innovation Pointe Work?
Innovation Pointe welcomes patrons of all ages, though minors under 10 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian so they can have the best possible experience.
Patrons age 10 and up can utilize equipment without charge after acquiring necessary knowledge, skills, and safety training. Machines are time-limited and some have material costs associated with their use. Patrons complete “badging”—a practical learning process akin to earning a skill merit badge.
