Kids visiting PCL's Mobile Library at several schools on its regular schedule this summer have the opportunity to try out some creative projects using tools and materials from PCL's new Everyplace Makerspace truck.  The Everyspace Makespace is equipped with a vinyl cutter, 3-D Printer, Surface Pro devices with pens, programmable Dash Robots, 360-degree (virtual reality) cameras, a poster printer, sewing machines with carts, a 4K laser projector and giant inflatable screen, plus STEM sets, building kits and a giant tent.  

Everyspace Makerspace will be working also with participating summer camps at Providence Recreation Centers and will visit the Family Service of Rhode Island Summer Block Party on Wednesday, July 10.

Everyplace Makerspace was made possible in part thanks to a generous $45,300 Studio Rhode grant from the RI Office of Library and Information Services (OLIS), using funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
