Innovation Labs

We have Innovation Labs in our libraries in Annapolis Royal, Kingston and Wolfville.  As well, we have a Mobile Innovation Lab that stays in one of our other libraries for a few months at a time.  To know where the Mobile Innovation Lab is located, check out our Events Calendar.

Each of these labs is a little different in what they offer.  They've been developed with community influences.  Each of them has a core set of equipment consisting of:

  • Ultimaker3 - 3D Printer (demo)
  • Cricut Maker (cutter)  (demo)
  • Cricut Heat Press 2 (demo)
  • Serger - Brother 3534D (demo) 
  • Sewing Machine(s) - Janome Heavy Duty (demo)
