The Metuchen Makery

The Library may be closed, but that doesn’t mean our 3D printer is not working.

The Makerspace’s 3D printer has been out on loan to our friend and Metuchen resident Jerred, who has been hard at work contributing to the cause, printing face shields and ear savers (used to hold up face masks) for hospitals and healthcare workers throughout the tri-state area.  He has already made way over nine hundred masks and is still going strong!

Check out Jerred’s Facebook page where he demonstrates how a mask is assembled.



The Metuchen Makery is sponsored by the Friends of the Metuchen Library through funding from the Lemelson Foundation



Metuchen Makery Mission Statement

The Metuchen Makery is a place for creativity, imagination and innovation. This makerspace cultivates imagination as the cornerstone of active learning and supports the library’s evolving role as a community center where people of all ages and backgrounds come together to create tangible projects using shared resources.


 The Metuchen Makery aims to:

  • Provide a space equipped with traditional tools and new technology in a hands-on, creative environment
  • Offer programs for children, teens and adults to introduce emerging technology and projects
  • Create opportunities for individuals and organizations within the community to collaborate and share expertise
  • Join forces with other libraries to help shape the maker movement

The Library reserves the right to record or photograph library users for publicity purposes, unless an individual files a Photo Opt Out Release Form. Please view the Photo Opt Out Policy.
