39 Innovation Center Opening

Let's make something!

The Innovation Centers at Cuyahoga County Public Library are creative, collaborative and educational spaces that provide access to advanced software, emerging technologies and production equipment. There is no charge to use the equipment in the Innovation Centers, however users are responsible for the costs of consumable materials (e.g., 3D printing filament, vinyl material). Limited supplies of consumable materials are available for purchase. We encourage innovators to bring their own pre-approved materials for their projects.
