What is the Maker Playground?

The Maker Playground aspires to be an integral part of the Cherry Hill Public Library (CHPL), as well as help transform current library programming with participatory learning and creation.

The Maker Playground extends the vision and outreach of CHPL in its mission to offer superior service, excellence, and innovative technologies to the surrounding community.  It is designed to promote creativity, learning, expression, sharing, design for the educational and informational needs of the library's patrons. In particular it will encourage the use of technology, crafting, science, engineering, mathematics, and artistic/creative abilities.


Maker Playground materials and equipment is made possible by the Friends of the Cherry Hill Public Library.
