With our Transformation Project well underway, we are bringing to life an extraordinary new space to that will be uniquely able to support the countless ways the community creates and connects.
By purchasing an item off of our wish list, you are helping us continue to fulfill our mission to empower the individual and strengthen the community through dynamic interaction and the lively exchange of ideas now and for generations to come.
Thank you for your support of the Westport Library!
One of the most reliable and highest quality 3D printers available, we would like to add a second Ultimaker to our MakerSpace. We will use the new Ultimaker for printing patrons’ original designs and inventions to replace the UPrint industrial printer giving us more efficient and higher quality products.
Glowforge is a wireless, desktop 3D laser printer that will give our makers endless flexibility. Using CAD, we can help to create all kinds of items from a variety of different materials like wood, leather, felt, fabric, acrylic, paper, and more.
We plan to use a variety of compressor tools (like a pneumatic nail gun) in the new MakerSpace, so this is a must-have so this noisy work can coexist with other activities in the Library.
The new MakerSpace will be more of a production lab than ever before, and the ShopBot is an essential tool to add to our inventory. In addition to impressive woodworking capabilities, the Desktop delivers engraving level precision and the power and rigidity to machine parts from wood, plastic, aluminum, and other materials. The Desktop can perform a wide range of workbench, prototyping and production projects.
Our soldering programs are always popular, and we already have an array of soldering irons and materials. The fume extractor will allow us to do our soldering programs from anywhere giving us mobility and flexibility.
