WATERTOWN, MA — Even though the Watertown Free Public Library’s Hatch Makerspace is closed to the public, you can still access Hatch’s 3D printers and laser cutter for free. Starting the week of May 25, Hatch staff will be available to 3D print and laser cut original work submitted online. All you need to do is submit your design files and collect the work when it is complete.
Although WFPL’s Makerspace was never intended to function in this way, as short-order print shop, the new curbside pickup option is just one of many ways Hatch staff are adapting to encourage creativity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Watertown has such an amazing community of makers and creative people who miss the camaraderie at Hatch” says Hatch Coordinator Liz Helfer. “We hope that this program fills a creative void that many makers feel right now.”
