The Makerspace, located in the Waycross-Ware County Public Library, is intended both as a participatory learning space and a means for all of our community members to become inventors, creators and makers. The tools here are for educational, practical, entrepreneurial and recreational uses. Of all the resources available in the Makerspace, the most brilliant and useful is you, our community! The Makerspace celebrates the power of our community members to collaborate to identify problems, create solutions, and generate ideas to address various challenges.


The Makerspace has three main focus areas:
Making: Focus on physical exploration and fabrication
Creative Tools: Focus on digital arts, illustration, photo, video and audio editing
Coding/Game Design: Focus on programming languages and digital game design

Get a Library Card

It’s easy!

1. Get immediate access to all digital resources OKRLS offers by completing this online application.

2.  If you’d like full access to our books and other materials, complete the online application and then visit your local library. Be sure to bring your driver’s license or other photo ID with you.

3.  If your driver’s license or photo ID doesn’t have your current address on it, you’ll also need to bring something official, like a pre-printed check or utility bill, that does show your name and current address.

4.  Verify your application with library staff and be sure to sign the bottom of the application.

You’ll get your library card and you can check out library materials right away. Find your closest OKRLS library here!
