The CDL Garage is now open! View the collection on the second floor of the library on the shelving behind the reference desk. Create, Design, and Learn by checking out a tool today!

The CDL Garage is a new collection of unusual items available through the Chelsea District Library. To help our patrons Create, Design, and Learn in a hands-on way, we’ll be offering a variety of “things” for check-out.

While a few “Garage” items, like our popular wifi hotspots, are available now, soon tools and equipment for all kinds of creating and making will be available. Knitting needles, Arduino electronics kits, a digital microscope, and portable projectors are just a few of the items we’ll be adding. We can’t wait for you to poke around in our garage to see what you’d like to borrow!
