Join us at the Camdenton Library in our MakerSpace known as the Creation Station. When you visit the Creation Station you will see different kinds of equipment that we have available for public use. Creation Station is open Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and on Saturdays at 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
We have 2 different 3D printers available for use, a Flash Forge and a Prusa. Download a print from thingiverse.com or build your design using TinkerCad or another 3D design source, bring them on a flash drive, upload them to our computer and send the print to the printer or email the design to us and we will print it off for you, all you have to do is pick it up. Or you can create your own lithophane, originally done on thin, translucent porcelain, but in our case down with a 3D printer, and the picture can only be seen clearly when back lit with a light source. To do this visit Image to Lithophane, upload your photo, and choose the shape. Once you have done this you can download the file as an .stl and save it to a flash drive to bring into the library and print it on one of our 3D printers.

Pretty cool, huh?
Not familiar with the term CNC? That's okay, CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control, this machine can be used to cut wood, plastics, and soft/non-ferrous materials, just to name a few. This machine has a cutting area of 15.7in x 15.7in. x 3.9in and uses a 1/8" bit for cutting.
No matter if you are a professional or amateur photographer/videographer we have equipment available for public use. We have a green screen, umbrella lights, an HD video camera, and a Mac to upload your photos/videos to make your final product look amazing.

Let your creativity shine by showing off your photography/recording skills! We have a Sony HD videocamera, green screen, Photoshop, Adobe Premier, iMovie, just to name a few programs, that will allow your project(s) to stand out. Music more your creative element? Don't worry we have you covered there as well. We have a MacBook loaded with Garage Band, Protools, Audacity software, studio monitors, microphones, headphones, and a midi keyboard for recording purposes. Artists may bring their own instruments in to record or practice If the recording session is going to require high volume levels, please contact a staff member to make an appointment; loud volumes may require recording after normal library hours.
We have added a sewing machine to our Creation Station. Along with the use of the sewing machine we provide the needles and thread for the machine. Bring in your mending or other sewing projects today!
VHS/DVD to Digital
Our newest edition to the Creation Station is a VHS/DVD to digital converter. With this device you can playback and record VHS tapes or DVDs to our computer. We also have a DVD burner that can be used to burn the videos to disc. This is free to use but we do not provide the discs to burn the videos on.
