Library @ 712

712 Innovations is a makerspace and shared workspace housing equipment and technologies that startups and entrepreneurs usually don’t have access to, things like a laser cutter, soldering equipment and industrial strength sewing machines. It’s a membership-based organization, open 24/7 and located at 712 Kansas Avenue in downtown Topeka.

To try out the services and equipment at 712 Innovations, you can check out a pass from the library. Or visit to find out how to become a member. And if you have a library card, you’re welcome to reserve a 3-hour worktime at the library’s tech-focused Make-It Lab.
