Cannot find a quiet place to finish an important school project? Or maybe you are into building things or handicrafts? The makerspace offers a space for the realisation of your ideas and a box to hold the resulting creations. Feeling out of ideas? No problem – we have plenty and are eager to share. Uncomfortable to come alone? Come with your friends!
What is this?
PATS SAU: open makerspace of the Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania for school-age children and young people. PATS SAU: create, discover, preserve, be curious, achieve, recognise, record.
Visit the National Library: here you will find over two dozen well-equipped individual workstations, 3D printer, vinyl and thermofilm cutter, thermal press, mini sublimation printer, robotics and electronics kits, programming microcomputers, computers with the necessary software and various materials to realise your ideas. If tired or waiting for your industrious workers, enjoy the relaxation and reading space.
If it is obvious that you are no longer of school age, we reserve the right to ask you to show a valid student card. Unless you are accompanied by a holder of such student card.
Groups of schoolchildren are also welcome: we will offer a variety of creative programmes – from robot building to film-making.
Makerspace opening hours:
