This new collaborative space in our library has a variety of equipment and materials for youth, teens and adults to explore creative projects. Expect to find tools as sophisticated as sewing and embroidery machines, and cameras; and STEM supplies as fundamental as Lego® blocks to cardboard. 

The Royal Oak Public Library's Makerspace is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit
