The Studio, our new makerspace, is a collaborative place that encourages creative exploration, design, and building, using a variety of technology and equipment.
Our collection of equipment and tools has been carefully selected by our staff based on research and feedback from a survey shared with all Library cardholders.
The Studio is generously sponsored by the Bruce A. Michel Trust.
The Library is currently closed to the public, and will remain closed per State of Illinois shelter-in-place order. The Studio is unavailable at this time.
The Studio is located on the second floor, near the Reference Desk and patron copiers. The Studio and its equipment are available to Park Ridge Public Library cardholders only.
