The Saline County Library Makerspace – in conjunction with our Library of Things – fully encompasses the idea that "We Are More." We are "rewriting tradition" by providing our community with tools, materials, and invaluable educational experiences with which they normally would not interact. 

Benton Makerspace will be open Monday from 9 am - 12 pm and 2 pm - 5 pm, Tuesday from 9 am - 12 pm, Thursday from 2 pm to 5 pm, plus the second Saturday of the month from 9 am - 12 pm. Bryant Makerspace open hours are Tuesday from 9 am - 12 pm and Thursday from 2 pm - 5 pm. 

For a full list of Makerspace equipment and rules, visit our Makerspace page on our website.
