Now is the Time to Get Creative at the NEW Maker Space!
The  Maker  Space at the Wyckoff Library is a place for community members to connect, discover, and create.  The library strives to provide enriching opportunities for people to learn new skills and collaborate.  The  Maker  Space will provide access to a variety of tools that allow patrons to make, explore, and tinker.  Acquiring basic technology skills is essential in the 21st century. Libraries are a logical place for the community to come together to learn and explore technology-new and old.

The library received a grant from State Farm to create a Maker Space. Residents helped to secure the grant through voting online. Additional support for equipment has been given from the Friends of the Wyckoff Library.
