OPEN LAB TIMES (SUMMER HOURS):
Mondays 2-6pm // Tuesdays 5-8 pm // Thursdays 5-8 pm // Saturdays 1-4 pm
During Open Lab we encourage individuals and small groups of all levels of experience to learn and create!
Come with an idea in mind, or try out the equipment. During this time equipment and experts are available to YOU at no cost. We have an awesome group of library staff and community members who can help you during open lab times with your projects.
Learn more about working with a particular person in the lab, or how to dive deeper into a particular subject area at madisonbubbler.org/media-lab.
Enjoy play-centered, child led activities in the park each week, based on the educational approach of Anji Play.
The library will provide special play equipment to spark your children's imagination. At the end of each event, kids will create a Play Story, drawing and/or writing about their play for that day.
Wear messy clothes, bring a water bottle, (optional) bring a picnic dinner or purchase a meal from the "Let's Eat Out" local food carts, and make an evening of it!
Make the library a part of your special day.
