Valley of the Tetons Library has temporarily shelved its search for a new, larger home for the Driggs library and instead nearly doubled its existing footprint by moving the popular Makerspace into the studio next door. Now Friends of the Valley of the Tetons Library is fundraising to install a digital media room for expanded services including audio and video recording and digitization.
Makerspace specialist Tucker Tyler hopes to have the new Main Street location in the former dance academy studio open in some capacity by January, although that depends on how quickly renovation wraps up; local contractors are helping make the rear of the studio more accessible for all users.
“I’m excited about getting people in here again in the kind of numbers that gets the energy up,” Tyler said. “We needed an interim option and this was ideal.”
