Children's Makerspace - Through a grant from the Barberton Community Foundation and the generosity of the both the Barberton Kiwanis and the Magic City Kiwanis, the library has been able to purchase a variety of supplies and equipment to create a Makerspace in which the children of Barberton can build, discover and create. This fall, we will offer a variety of activities related to our Makerspace through Take & Make activity bags and activities here on the website. We want to give kids a chance to experience our Makerspace, while we wait for the current health situation to improve. Makerspace activities may be offered in person at the library, stop by anytime we are open to see what we have available.
