Studio 775, Lafayette Library's mini-makerspace, is a collaborative, community-driven space where users of all ages can learn to use new tech tools in creative ways. Located in the light-filled north end of the upper level, the mini-makerspace is a venue for workshops and independent projects.

How to submit
Initially we are accepting only 3D print requests (in .STL format). Printing is free, but projects are limited by print time to 4-5 hours. That usually means a size fitting within a 6” cube, and smaller if it is a dense item. Projects will be printed with a single color of PLA filament, and can be painted with acrylic paints if you want different colors on the final project.
We look forward to expanding to accept Carvey and Cricut projects in the future. Feel free to contact us with further questions.
Please allow one to two weeks for your project to be printed. You will be notified by email when it is ready. To retrieve your completed project, call our Curbside Pickup number, 303-661-1160 during the following hours: Monday 10-4, Tuesday 10-7, Wednesday-Saturday 10-4.
