Entrepreneurial space 'Ives Squared' debuts at NH library

City officials will cut the ribbon this afternoon on Ives Squared, a new public space for innovators, entrepreneurs and artists in the New Haven Free Public Library.

Located inside the Ives Main Library on the New Haven Green, the center will include a makerspace, where patrons can learn how to use 3D printers and other technology, a collaborative working space and a café.

Officials envision the space as the Elm City's "front door for innovation" where library patrons and the public can go for help.

The project is one of 14 being funded by the Elm City Innovation Collaborative through a $2 million "Innovation Places" grant from CTNext, Connecticut's quasi-public entrepreneurial support organization, to help the city become a high-tech hub.

Mayor Toni N. Harp is expected to join Martha Brogan, city librarian, and the library's board of directors for the ceremony today at 4:30 p.m. on the first floor of the library at 133 Elm St.
