SACHS now has a makerspace. The makerspace program is for learning how to teach yourself new things. This includes: making, experimenting, designing, printing, circuit building, taking apart, rebuilding, recycling, playing, and more. SACHS Makerspace Services include activities that happen in the library, items to check out, and workshops. Library staff highly recommend attending a workshop to learn more about various activities, such as 3D Printing Workshops, Circuits Workshops, and other relevant workshops. SACHS Makerspace is open to St. Anthony students, teachers, and staff.
