Capital Makers is the Carson City Library’s makerspace. By offering makers this space with equipment, tools, and partnerships, the Library serves as an innovation center for our community and provides open access to information and various technologies to enhance professional, personal, and educational goals. Check out the tabs below to find out more about the equipment we offer, the certification process, open hours, and how to be more involved.
A Carson City Library Premiere Card is required to use the Capital Makers equipment. Contact us for more information about applying for a Premiere Card. Premiere Card holders 14 and older can request equipment certifications. Youth 10-13 years can be certified on equipment and use the makerspace when accompanied by a similarly certified Premiere cardholder. Participants must read and sign the Capital Makers liability waiver and the Capital Makers Rules and Regulations forms to complete their first in-person certification appointment. The documents only need to be signed once, unless revisions need to be made.
The Carson City Library was awarded a federal Library Services and Technology Act state grant through Nevada by the Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records. With this funding, the Library can offer the community a learning space that inspires creativity, promotes skill-building, and provides opportunities.
