Veteran uses Maker Studio

Eileen Hands, a Burr Ridge resident and IPPL cardholder since 2005, has been a lifelong supporter of libraries. But, even she was a little surprised when she learned she could get help with an embroidery project at IPPL.

The Maker Studio has the latest Brother embroidery machine.
Hands came to IPPL needing help putting a design on a cap that she later wore on the first all-women Honor Flight from Chicago in late fall.
Hands was a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army Nurse Corps and served for three years during the Korean War.
"You have no idea how delighted I am to have this available to me," Hands said about the Maker Studio and the one-on-one instruction she received from the Maker Studio staff.
"I have a great deal of respect for the public library system," she says, adding that she often looked for Carnegie libraries when she traveled to small towns.
