Back by popular demand! Learn to make simple soldered circuits at the Dover Public Library on Tuesday December 13th at 6pm through a partnership project with Port City Makerspace. This is a free library workshop about simple electronics and soldering, which is the process of fusing metals together by melting solder between them. Participants will use a hot soldering iron to melt solder and then fuse LED lights to a robot badge ornament for the tree or a light up 3D Christmas tree! This workshop is open to ages 10 and up, but pre-registration is required. There are 10 spots available. Sign up through the library’s Event Calendar at http://library.dover.nh.gov/ or call the Library at 603-516-6050 to register.

The workshop will be hosted by Alex from Port City Makerspace (http://www.portcitymakerspace.com/), a non-profit shop that provides tools and workspace to members for a low monthly fee. They offer education aimed at safely utilizing tools and workspaces, and also promote the exchange of ideas. Members work both independently and collaboratively to research ideas, develop projects, and put their heads and hands to good use. They are open to the public at 68 Morning Street in Portsmouth and no experience is necessary. There are lots of reasons that you need tools in your life, and they are willing to help in any way they can.

For more information about this free soldering workshop, call Susan at the Dover Public Library: 603-516-6050.
