Sparks’s Lab is open to Ocean County Library card-holders. Prior to using the OCL Sparks’s Lab, makers must fill out a Maker Agreement Form; and verify his/her identity with a valid Ocean County library card. A minor without a valid library card may verify his/her identity with the library card and valid photo ID of a parent/legal guardian with appropriate legal authority to sign the Maker Agreement Form. Ocean County Library welcomes out-of-county visitors to use Sparks’s Lab. Visitors must show an approved form of identification, as per our Computer & Internet Use policy.
Young children are the responsibility of their parents or caregivers and may not be left unattended in the Sparks’s Lab. Makers under age 9 must be with their parents or caregivers in Sparks’s Lab at all times. Parent/caregiver supervision is recommended for all minors, as the lab contains potentially dangerous tools.
Sparks’s Lab staff will help troubleshoot equipment issues but will not actively participate in your projects. The library is not responsible for failed projects. We reserve the right to halt, delete, or disallow the creation of any item that violates the Maker Agreement or Ocean County Library policies.
