The Maker Spot

Policies

The Maker Spot aims to be a flexible, participatory learning environment where any North Richland Hills (NRH) Library patron can utilize a host of hands-on learning opportunities, gain access to the latest technology to encourage entrepreneurship, and help our patrons (makers) become more creative and empowered with new skills. 

We want makers of all sorts to share the space and equipment with one another. In order to achieve this goal, patrons of The Maker Spot must adhere to not only the NRH Library’s policies but the additional policies and responsibilities listed below. Failure to do so may result in The Maker Spot and/or Library privileges revoked as outlined in the NRH Library’s Patron Behavior Policy

Registration and Access to The Maker Spot 

Makers must be a NRH Library cardholder in good standing. Prior to using The Maker Spot for the first time, all makers must complete the Maker Agreement (Accident Waiver and Release of Liability Form), present their library card, and verify their identity with a photo ID. Makers under 17 must have a parent or guardian present to sign the Maker Agreement. Makers under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. The age restrictions will be identified on the usage guidelines for each piece of equipment. 

Before each subsequent use, makers must check-in at the reference desk on the 2nd floor with their library card or photo ID.
