Brambleton Public Library A public library probably doesn’t spring to mind as a major destination for holiday gifts, but it can if you’re talking about the spectacular Brambleton branch of the Loudoun County library system. In the Brambleton Library Makerspace, you can use the facility’s laser cutter, 3D printer, silk-screening station and pottery kiln to make personalized craft gifts.   library.loudoun.gov/Brambleton
