Make It @ Your Library: Resource for Makerspaces

Screen Shot 2014 02 25 at 1 48 52 PM

Make It @ Your Library has an awesome collection of tutorials and resources for makerspaces and educators! There’s a Basic Arduino Robot guide, a tutorial on how to make your own DoodleBot360, and many more. Most of the materials required can be found around the house or at local craft stores, which keeps the cost low as well.

Hello, we are the folks behind Make it @ Your Library. In 2012, we came together as part of ILEAD USA, an IMLS grant funded library program, with the intention of helping librarians realize makerspace projects in their communities. A few months later, we had the concept for this site, and Make It @ Your Library was starting to take shape!

This site is brought to you in collaboration with Instructables and the American Library Association, and it is our hope that through this site, libraries of all stripes and sizes will be able to experiment with maker projects. Make it @ Your Library believes that content creation in the library is a vital direction for our libraries to pursue. Maker projects don’t need to be the result of thousands of dollars of space renovation, equipment or special staffing. The projects on this site, powered by Instructables and vetted by librarians, are a great way to begin. Happy creating!
