MAKERSPACE POLICY

The Makerspace at Thibodaux Branch Library provides a hands-on creative space for patrons to invent, collaborate, and design as they transform their ideas into reality. The Makerspace is reserved specifically for the use of creating. Patrons may use other areas in the Library to read, relax, or do other work not related to DIY projects.
