Makerspace Equipment

The BPL Makerspace is free to use for Bloomingdale Public Library cardholders. Some equipment requires a cost for materials. We encourage you to bring in your own materials to create your projects.

The library sells a limited supply of materials. View our price list for material costs. Only cash accepted.

Patrons are responsible for preparing their designs/projects and using the equipment/software. During Open Use Time, library staff will have varying levels of expertise with the Makerspace equipment and software. Please note that help may be limited, and some staff members are unable to assist with specific Makerspace equipment or software.
