Elgin County Library: Maker Spaces

Elgin County Library is excited to offer a "Maker Space" in the Aylmer Old Town Hall Library, as well as the John Kenneth Galbraith Reference Library in Dutton. Both spaces act as collaboration hubs, offering technologies and tools that allow patrons to experiment and create in a social setting. 

Elgin County Library is pleased to acknowledge a contribution from the Estate of Dorothy Fay Palmer towards the creation of a “Maker Space” at the Aylmer Old Town Hall Library to facilitate programming and opportunities for youth relating to the study of current and emerging technologies.
