Watertown's library has long provided books, music and videos, and now it will become a place where residents can be creative.
The Watertown Free Public Library will start a makerspace, and library officials want to see what activities people would like to undertake. The library has started an online survey to gauge interest.
"A makerspace will allow users a chance to learn about and experiment with traditional technologies, computer technologies, and emerging technologies with tools, equipment, and materials that most people would not have available to them at home," reads the survey introduction.
The survey asks about interest in a number of technologies, including 3-D printers, sewing machines, bike tools and many more. People are also asked about what kinds of activities they are interested in and whether people would like to share their knowledge and skills with others in town.
