The Golden Library is starting something new today: Adult Makers Guild. Calling all makers! Have a project idea but not all the tools? Want to learn a new skill? Golden’s DIY Lab gives you a place to meet other tinkerers and use our Maker Space to work on your latest project. Become part of a like-minded community of adults while exploring the possibilities, from fiber arts to hand tools to robotics. Suitable for: Adults. This gathering will take place in the library’s DIY Lab from 12:30-2:30.
