Children's Innovation Lab

Thanks to a $10,000 donation from Friends of the Library, SPL has opened an Innovation Lab in the Children’s area (second floor) at Frances Morrison Central Library. There are a variety of free materials patrons can use to create whatever they desire in this self-directed learning space, wihch aligns with one of the pillars of SPL’s Strategic Plan: Inspiring Learning, Discovery and Creation.

The space can be used anytime the library is open. Most of the equipment in this room will be low-tech and easy for patrons to use on a self-directed basis for crafts and other projects. Examples of items that will be included in this room are as follows:

- Markers, pencil crayons, etc. 
- Glue
- Yarn/string
- Tape
- Scissors
- Wire
- Button Maker
- Graph paper
- Cable ties, bulldog clips, etc
- LEGO

Questions about finding supplies, using the button maker or craft ideas? Just ask -- we're always happy to help!
