Square One Opening!

News Image

On Sunday, July 2, from 2-5 pm, the Woodland Public Library will open 745.5 Square One, a nearly 2000 square foot makerspace and community learning lab located on the ground floor of the Library. This Open House is planned for the public to meet Square One staff and volunteers, tour the facility, and learn more about the equipment and classes offered through Square One.

A makerspace is an area dedicated to education through creation where users can imagine, explore, and collaborate in hands-on learning, design, and production. The Makerspace Movement has gained momentum in recent years worldwide as a creative, collaborative space outside home, school, and work to explore and learn. This movement aligns with the library’s mission to provide education and literacy to the community. “Libraries have always been on the forefront of providing public access to emerging technology that isn’t readily available to most consumers,” stated Greta Galindo, Woodland Public Library Director.
