SABINA — The East Clinton High School Library has started the movement toward makerspaces.

Makerspaces — sometimes referred to as hackerspaces and fablabs — are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn. In libraries they often have 3D printers, software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies and tools, and more.

Last month’s Friday Fablab, East Clinton’s first, was learning to crochet where staff and students learned to crochet plastic bag strips to create mats for the homeless.

This Friday, Nov. 4 the East Clinton High School Library will hold their Friday Fablab in the art room as staff, students and community members come together to create wonderful Christmas gifts out of old window frames.

Mrs. Earley, the East Clinton High School librarian, and Mrs. Kasberg, the art/photography teacher, invite anyone in the community who would like to come and be a part of this fabulous fablab.

To register, contact Mrs. Earley at 937-584-2474 ext 213. Spaces for this fablab are on a first-come, first-served basis as there are a limited number of window frames. The cost is $20 for adults and $10 for students.
