Boundary County Library Director, Craig Anderson, has the vision, and a mission, to create a state-of-the-art learning center, geared toward further education, economic basics and technology for the residents of Boundary County.
Next month, the library will be launching its MIT-affiliated Fab Lab, technically known as Massachusetts Institute of Technology Center for Bits and Atoms Fab(rication) Laboratory. In 2013, MIT extended the library an invitation to establish the Fab Lab, bringing cutting-edge technology and innovation right here to Bonners Ferry.
What is a Fab Lab? It is an interdisciplinary initiative exploring the boundary between computer science and physical science. CBA studies how to turn data into things, and things into data.

The best part? The education is free for both children and adults. Life-long learners of all ages will be welcome to learn how to use the Fab Lab to create, innovate, and revolutionize local and global markets. Staff will be there to assist and mentor the learning process for those who wish to further their education through this unique avenue. Read More…
