Registration is now open for makerspace orientation tours! Discover all the creative possibilities The Forge has to offer.
Masks Mandated For All Library Programs and Storytimes
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cranberry Public Library, along with Cranberry Township, has been monitoring recommendations from the Department of Health and Education, as well as CDC guidelines to determine safety protocols for Cranberry Public Library.
Due to the recent increase in COVID-19 transmission and in abundance of caution, the Library will be mandating masks for all adults and children 2 years of age & older during all library programs and storytimes. The expectation is that masks will be required while Butler County has substantial or high transmission levels.
The Library and Township continue to monitor both state and local guidance and request understanding that protocols and expectations could change. Changes will be communicated via the Library’s website.
Dream, design, collaborate and create at the Cranberry Library Forge
Thanks to generous donors and CTCC, The Forge is ready to open its doors. Similar to makerspaces in our schools, our space features a laser engraver, 3-D printers, computer-controlled cutting machines, an embroidery sewing machine, electronics and a variety of specialized hand tools for crafting.
Library patrons are welcome to register for classes. After demonstrating mastery of the equipment, they will be able to design and create their own projects. Experience isn’t required! We’ll teach you to use the equipment. The makerspace will offer a safe, creative space to learn, create, explore and come together with other makers.
Watch for a list of classes and program to be announced very soon.
We’ve got a really awesome space to work in! We are so excited to introduce you to The Forge and look forward to opening our doors to makers young and old. Sit tight … we’re almost there!
In the meantime, we are busy behind the scenes preparing supplies and materials that will be used in the Forge. You can help us get up and running by purchasing essential items from our Forge Wish List.
You can support our Makerspace and make our wishes come true!
