Children's Makerspace - Through a grant from the Barberton Community Foundation and the generosity of the both the Barberton Kiwanis and the Magic City Kiwanis, the library has been able to purchase a variety of supplies and equipment to create a Makerspace in which the children of Barberton can build, discover and create. This winter, we will offer a variety of activities related to our Makerspace through Take & Make activity bags and activities here on the website.  We want to give kids a chance to experience our Makerspace, while we wait for the current health situation to improve.
