Calling all Makers!


chbMAKERS is a gathering place where you can discover new skills, create your own projects and network with other makers in our community.

chbMAKERS is currently located just beyond the YA Department on the 2nd floor. It was made possible through a generous anonymous gift and also funded by GE Capital and fundraising efforts of the CH Booth Library’s Board of Trustees. chbMAKERS provides free access to new technologies and materials that allow you to learn new skills, create your own projects and connect with other makers in the community.

The chbMAKERS’ Corner is stocked with an array of devices to provide users with options to explore a variety of new technologies. Once you’ve been trained on using some or all of the equipment you’ll be able to make an appointment to use the equipment on your own. Please call the library at 203-426-4533 for availability.
