North Richland Hills: Community Build Event

North Richland Hills: Community Build Event

After three years in operation, The Maker Spot in the North Richland Hills Library is ready to give back to our community and are excited to announce our first-ever Community Build, “Lend a Hand.” The event will take place on Thursday, March 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Local makers will gather together to use their skills for a good cause and create 3D printed prosthetic hands for the local e-NABLE chapter.

During the event, North Richland Hills (NRH) makers will help 3D print parts for the prosthetic hands and assemble the final working hands. NRH community members are invited to stop by and help test the prosthetic hands, make cards for the recipients of the hands and collaborate to create a commemorative work of art to be hung in The Maker Spot.

The e-NABLE Community is an amazing group of individuals from all over the world who are using their 3D printers to create free 3D printed hands and arms for those in need of an upper limb assistive device.

The Maker Spot is a 4,500 sq. ft. makerspace on the second floor of the Library. The Maker Spot is a community work space where Library cardholders can come to create, explore, collaborate and innovate. The Maker Spot was funded by a Special Projects grant from the Texas State Library and Archives and the Institute for Museum and Library Services (2015) and is staffed by existing full-time and part-time Library staff. For more information, call 817-427-6850 or email info@themakerspot.org.
