Chabot Maker-space FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. Who can use the space?

The library Create/Learn/Share space is open to current students. We do ask that all visitors sign in at the reference desk, and state how they are going to use the space and what supplies they will need. We then also make sure that all users have signed the User Agreement and understand the Safety Regulations for their activities. We will also keep the space open for study when not in use.

2. How many people are allowed in the space at one time?

We will limit the number of people to 2-11 at one time.

3. What are some possible activities?

The possibilities are endless, but we will schedule special workshops and provide tools and materials for creative craft and technology projects. We are looking into using the space for children's story-times and recording of personal histories, paper art, bookmarks, bookbinding, zines, posters, origami, chess and other games. Technology activities will include a mini-robotics, electronics, 3D printer and materials, sewing machines, cutting tables, and a range of supplies.

4. Can student clubs reserve the space?

Yes, the room will be suitable for small group creative projects and activities of all sorts.
