Last night, on Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2018, the Little Elm Public Library celebrated its 20th anniversary with a proclamation, a celebration, and a ribbon cutting announcing the new Makerspace! If you missed the party, that's okay, we've recapped it for you in this blog!

The Makerspace Ribbon Cutting. Library Director Lynette Roberson and Library Tech Specialist Kelley Anderson cut the ribbon, revealing the much-anticipated Makerspace. The Makerspace, which was funded by donations from the Little Elm Friends of the Library, is the place where people with shared interests, such as computing and creating can bring their ideas to life using different kinds of materials and technology.

The Makerspace features:

MakerBot Replicator+ 3D printer. The MakerBot Replicator+ 3D printer brings your digital dreams to life. This top-of-the-line 3D printer prints fast, and with the precision you need.

Zmorph VX 3-in-one CNC mill. This all-in-one printer, extruder, and laser cutter is everything you need for creating in one easy to use package. It can also engrave and mill, too!

Full Spectrum P-Series Laser Cutter and Engraver. This powerful, but easy to use, cutter and engravers is designed with both the hobbyist in mind, but delivers high-quality, professional results.

The Proclamation. Mayor David Hillock presented Lynette Roberson, Library staff and members of the Little Elm Friends of the Library with a proclamation recognizing the Library’s anniversary. Mayor Hillock also expressed appreciation for the Little Elm Friends of the Library regarding its significant impact in growing and supporting the Library and its programs.

The Reception. After the Ribbon Cutting and Proclamation portions of the evening, attendees adjourned to a reception featuring cake, punch, and live guitar music.
