FORGE logoDream, design, collaborate and create at The Forge

Thanks to our generous donors and CTCC, The Forge has now been open for over a year! 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 Forge offers a safe, creative space to learn, create, explore and come together with other makers.
