What is iMake?

iMake is a weekly maker program for ages 10-18 designed to learn new skills and socialize with friends! Come make cool crafts like iPod speakers and hand sewn books, and learn skills like weaving, building and cyanotype printing! Past projects have included homemade bouncy balls, DIY sidewalk chalk, tie-dye and basic photo development.

When and Where

iMake takes place every Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. at the Main Library, either in the Community Room or in the Teen Area.
