Tools and Resources

The Makerspace provides access to a wide range of tools and resources. Any member of the public can use the tools and resources as long as they have a valid Lambton County Library card

PLEASE NOTE: Some equipment requires attendance at a workshop before it can be used independently.

For the most part, the tools and resources found in The Makerspace carry no significant safety considerations.  However, certain pieces of equipment (including laser cutter, sewing machines, soldering irons, vinyl cutter, 3D printers, DVD-VHS converter) require safety training.  Users will also be required to follow safe operating procedures at all times.  Further, all users will be required to read and agree to follow The Makerspace Maker Agreement in order to ensure that all users understand and follow the established safety procedures.
