About

STC Creative is a do-it-yourself makerspace. We provide the tools; you bring your creativity. From traditional crafts to new and emerging technologies, we offer space, tools, equipment, and technology to help the St. Charles community bring creations to life.

Many of our maker tools can be used independently during the reserved time. To use a maker tool, you must first complete either an in-person class or view online demonstration videos posted to Niche Academy. Patrons should be able to work with STC Creative maker tools without assistance from staff.

Our 3D printers and laser cutter are operated by Tech Help Desk staff due to safety protocols and high demand for the equipment. Please submit a 3D print request form online. For more information on 3D printing at the library, click here.
