CreateSpace@MFL was launched in January 2014 as a pop-up makerspace & digital media lab in the Middletown Free Library. The project was funded through an LSTA Creation Grant awarded in the fall of 2013.
In the summer of 2021, the library closed to relocate to our new home at the Roosevelt Community Center. The new CreateSpace@MFL is a 500 sq. ft. makerspace with a flexible design to accommodate all kinds of making and makers. Future plans include a recording studio for audio and video production.
You will be able to book time and equipment in the makerspace when not in use for library programs. You will need to complete an orientation before you will be able to book the space. Please visit our LocalHop reservation page for more information.
We offer a variety of equipment of tools that you can use in the library as part of a program or make an appointment to use on your own. Offerings include:
Programming is a key component of CreateSpace@MFL. We offer a variety of workshops, after school and summer programs for people of all ages. Check out our Library Programs page for upcoming workshops and programs. Our programs have been recognized with awards as well as chosen as topics for presentation at statewide and national conferences.
