Learn, Create and Make

The Hoboken Makerspace is a public Space: a place where the library fosters learning and creativity through education and access to tools. We host classes and collaborative projects as well as have the space open for general use on Mondays. Our tools and classes feature a variety of technologies, arts & crafts, and music.

Open-Use Time – Every Monday from 1 pm to 7 pm
