Your child will be learning and playing at the same time, it's win-win!

TINKERLOGO
craigwatsonHave you ever wondered what’s inside the electronic gadgets we use each day? Then Tinker Space is just right for you. Craig Watson, Grimsby's local REALTOR® with RE/MAX Escarpment Realty Inc., Brokerage started this successful program to share his enthusiasm for tinkering with technology. We'd like to thank Craig for his years of volunteering at the Grimsby Public Library and the contribution he has made to our programming.
 
A special thanks as well to Advantage Waste Systems our local ewaste service for providing an ongoing supply of materials for kids to dismantle. Without their support the Library would not be able to offer this amazing program.
