RENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) -- Washoe County Library System is thrilled to announce the grand opening of The QUAD, a new dedicated makerspace at the downtown Reno Library on Sunday, Aug. 19.
The Quad is designed to allow the community to gather and get creative with DIY projects, exploration, and discovery.
The public can enjoy a short ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:45 a.m. followed by lots of hands-on activities and demonstrations of our new equipment and virtual reality experiences until 2 p.m.
“We are creating a space for patrons to experiment with all kinds of new technologies and tools to create and invent,” according to Library Director Jeff Scott. “By opening this new makerspace we can also help students acquire the skills needed for the 21st century.”
The QUAD will contain equipment, hardware and software that the public can use free of charge to create and learn.
The makerspace will be open to the public every Thursday beginning Aug. 23 from 3 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
