The Makery

The Makery is our invitation to explore, create, and learn new skills to bring your ideas to life. We offer tutorials, checkouts for portable tools, and access to equipment and space to create.

How can I use the Makery?

Appointments are available during regular Library hours to patrons with a Westmont Public Library card (or card from any other SWAN library).
