OUR NEW CRICUT MACHINES
Washoe County Library System is excited to announce an expansion to our branch makerspace options. Starting this fall, branches will begin offering maker events featuring popular Cricut machines.
Patrons can get creative with the ultimate smart cutting machine, the Cricut Maker. From 3D art to vinyl and paper projects, the Maker is perfect for any number of intricate design ideas. Equally fun, the Cricut Mug Press will allow participants to personalize mugs through the use of infusible ink pens. The Cricut EasyPress 2 and the EasyPress Mini will offer a wealth of heat-transfer options--perfect for infusing designs onto shirts, bags, banners and more!
Look out for these imaginative options and more upcoming events at your local library.
