In April 2014, the Ottawa Public Library (OPL) and the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa collaborated to open Ottawa’s first public makerspace entitled Imagine Space – an American corner. Makerspaces are creation and collaboration hubs, offering technologies and tools that allow customers to experiment and to create in a social setting. They are built on the premise that knowledge and learning is often better transmitted via sharing, collective problem solving, and task performance.

The following cutting edge equipment is available in the Imagine Space:

  • 3D printing and modelling
  • Laser cutting
  • Photo, video and audio editing
  • Green screen and video gear
  • Hand tools and electronics
  • Wall-to-wall whiteboard
