Meet our Makerspace

Meet the coolest thing on four wheels; Buda Public Library's new Pop Up Makerspace! Makerspaces are "do it yourself" spaces where people can gather to create, innovate, and learn. By utilizing small tools and putting the makerspace on wheels, we can take this makerspace anywhere! The Buda Public Library Pop Up Makerspace will be shared with Hays CISD. Our makerspace contains gadgets that allow students to explore circuits, innovate with recycled objects, develop coding skills, and bring new life to ordinary things.
