The DAM, Beaverton City Library’s new makerspace, is now open at the main library. DAM, which stands for Design And Make, is a space for community members of all ages to come learn, practice skills, collaborate, prototype, and problem-solve. There is no cost to use materials and a library card is not required.
The makerspace contains maker technology, such as Arduino kits and Cricut machines. Five sewing machines and a variety of other fiber art equipment is available, from crochet and knitting needles to lap looms and embroidery supplies. Visitors will also
find visual art supplies, jewelry-making equipment, button and sticker makers, stamping supplies, scrapbooking and collage materials, soldering stations, and basic tool sets. There are a variety of coding, robotics, and engineering toys to inspire the youngest makers in our community. The space contains assistive crafting equipment to help DAM be accessible for visitors of all abilities.
