Maker-in-Residence program.

Chester County Library has announced its new Maker-in-Residence program, and is calling for Makers to apply to the program at Chester County Library and Henrietta Hankin Branch. 

What is a Maker? A maker can be an artist, musician, songwriter, crafter, techno-wizard, dancer, and lots more. A maker is a creative who loves the process — not just the end product and wants to share that process with others. 

The library’s ideal Maker is passionate about creating and wants to connect and share their passion with the community. Specifically, it seeks creators who: 

  • possess skills to teach and share their work and creative process 
  • love to interact with people from a wide variety of backgrounds 
  • enjoy collaborating with others 
  • are passionate about their craft 

The Maker-in-Residence will share activities through open studio hours and workshops that will allow visitors to try a new skill, experience a new craft, and/or participate in a collaborative project. 

All interested potential Makers-in-Residence should apply online here by Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2023. Interviews and selection of candidates will take place from Feb. 13 — Feb. 24. The residency will begin in mid-March 2023. 

For a complete description of the Residency or questions email or visit the website at

The Maker-in-Residence program is made possible through a generous donation from the Friends of the Chester County Library. For more information about becoming a member of the Friends, visit the website.
