Join us to open our new and improved Wilcox Boiler Room (formerly the Makerspace.) As part of Studio Rhode Westerly, we have been making changes to the space to accomodate more creating, innovating, and learning!
Our library's original benefactor, Stephen Wilcox, invented and patented a water-tube boiler. In that spirit, we wanted to make a space that fosters creativity, innovation, and invention. The Wilcox Boiler Room is named for Stephen Wilcox's famous invention and for all of the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activities that will take place in there.
Our ribbon-cutting and open house will feature demonstrations, crafts, and refreshments.
