Policies & Guidelines
All users must have their own Lafayette Library card (not an online card) to use the space, regardless of the user's age. The card number is needed to fill out the Makerspace Release, which also is required before your first use of the space and equipment. Your information will remain on file.
Once you have a card and have completed the Release form, each time you visit you will check in to the Makerspace using your Library card.
